About This Book

This Human Rights Watch report documents instances of police abuses against detainees and members of the public in East Timor since 2002. The non-accountability in discipline and inadequate training of the new police force is made evident. The report stresses the urgent need for appropriate remedial action before abuses are institutionalised. Urgent recommendations are made to the local authorities, the United Nations, Australia and Britain as well as other concerned parties and donors regarding the need for training, well-understood codes of conduct, and disciplinary and accountability procedures without which impunity will take over peace.
