Indonesia's ad hoc tribunals on East Timor

   Fri 10/01/2003

Does the Council recognise that the trials on East Timor show, as the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights states, that Indonesia has not taken responsibility for crimes against humanity in East Timor?

Is the Council aware of Indonesia's minimal cooperation with investigations into the deaths of Dutch citizen Sander Thoenes in September 1999 and British citizens Brian Peters and Malcom Rennie in 1975?

Will the Council invite the United Nations to establish an international tribunal on East Timor?

Will the Council become party to this international tribunal on East Timor?
