Further information on UA 228/94 (ASA 21/18/94, 13 June) - Indonesia / East Timor: "disappearance" / fear of torture: Filomeno da Silva Pereira, Francisco Miranda Branco, Gregorio da Cunha Saldanha, Jacinto das Neves Raimundo Alves, Juvencio de Jesus Mart

, Index number: ASA 21/019/1994

The six East Timorese prisoners of conscience earlier reported as "disappeared" are now understood to be in custody in the city of Semarang, Central Java. The six had managed a small protest during a visit by foreign journalists in April 1994 and it seems likely that they were moved to avoid further embarassment to the authorities during future official visits to East Timor.
