Timor-Leste: 'We cry for justice’: Impunity persists 10 years on in Timor-Leste

, Index number: ASA 57/001/2009

In August 1999, the Timorese people voted overwhelmingly in favour of independence from Indonesia in a UN-sponsored referendum. The lead-up to the polls and its aftermath were marred by crimes against humanity and other serious human rights. Most of those suspected of such crimes are still at large in Indonesia. In this report, Amnesty International sets out its recommendations to the governments of Timor-Leste and Indonesia, calling on them to develop and implement strategies that fully address the legacy of impunity for such crimes.
