Anger in East Timor over judge's treatment

Updated December 4, 2008 10:19:47

In East Timor, civil society groups and the opposition are voicing concern over a government decision not to renew the contract of a foreign judge who's made a series of decisions against the leadership. Critics say the decision not to renew Judge Ivo Nelson Rosa's contract is un-democratic, and sends a dangerous message to East Timor's judiciary and ordinary citizens.
