Timorese Govt does not care about justice for victims: Civil society

Radio Timor-Leste, April 11, 2012 language source: Tetun - The Timorese Government does not care about justice for the massacre victims but it prioritises its bilateral ties with Indonesia, Representative of Civil Society, Jose Moniz said.

Timorese civil society is concerned about this issue because the Government has not made any efforts to legally process the criminals, he said.

Moniz made the comments during a press conference which was held yesterday at the office of HAK, in Dili.

He said the two governments had ignored justice and accountability for the victims and they had no interest to follow-up the recommendations made by CAVR [Commission for reconciliation] calling on legal process for the criminals.
