NEWS FROM THE COMMITTEE TO PROTECT JOURNALISTS
JUSTICE DELAYED IN EAST TIMOR
The UN and the Indonesian government both think they know who killed two journalists in East Timor last year. So why aren't the suspects on trial?
New York, November 3, 2000 --- More than a year after the murders of journalists Sander Thoenes and Agus Muliawan in East Timor, CPJ finds that no one has been brought to justice for these crimes.
"Justice Delayed," CPJ's update on the status of prosecutorial efforts in East Timor and Indonesia, is now available on our Web site: www.cpj.org.
This report was distributed on November 1, at a memorial service held by Sander Thoenes' friends and colleagues at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the defense of press freedom around the world.
