About This Book

This revised 2006 edition of seven expert papers originally published by the Australian National University, Canberra, has an introduction by Noam Chomsky. The study of the 1998/9 terror in East Timor includes a sequential summary of events; accounts of the disclosures and cover-ups of many governments and organisations including Indonesia's Ad Hoc Human Rights Court; and the full report of its Investigative Commission. Reports on the Key Suspects are discussed in detail and American and other investigations explored. The equivocal stances of international bodies, Australia, Great Britain and other nations are highlighted. The international inaction against virtually all the national policies and individuals responsible for the terror and slaughter is described. Reasons for the establishment of an international tribunal to deal with the East Timor terror are set out. Indexed.
