Indonesia / East Timor: The Liquiza killings
On 13 January 1995, Indonesian authorities announced that six East Timorese guerrillas had been killed in a military confrontation with the armed forces in Ermera, East Timor. Independent sources have claimed that the six people killed were civilians and the Indonesian Government came under increasing international pressure to investigate the incident. On 11 February the Indonesian Government announced that a military investigation had found that members of the security forces acted improperly in the killing. The establishment of an Honorary Military Council to deal with the case was announced. Those found guilty of violations of the military code may face court martial. AI welcomes the fact that an inquiry into the killings has been initiated but is urging the government to ensure that the inquiry meets international standards.
