Indonesia: Truth-seeking and formal public apology is essential for 1965/1966 resolution
In this open letter Amnesty International, ETAN (East Timor and Indonesia Action Network), TAPOL and Watch Indonesia! urge the Indonesian government to take the important steps necessary to ensure that the national symposium on the 1965 tragedy leads to justice, truth and reparation for victims. This initiative must be followed with a full investigation into human rights violations committed between 1965 and 1966. This is to not only establish the truth of what happened but also, where sufficient admissible evidence exists, ensure that those suspected of committing crimes are prosecuted.
