It is never too late for justice! It is never too late to end impunity! This year we mark the 20th anniversary of Timor-Leste's historic referendum on independence. Although the Timorese people are free from foreign occupation, they have yet to see justice for the countless crimes they suffered at the hands of the U.S.-backed Indonesian security forces.


Since the vote, a few limited justice processes have occurred . Investigations by the UN, Timor-Leste, and others have affirmed the right of the people of Timor-Leste and the international community to seek justice for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed between 1975 and 1999. ETAN and others have long called for an international tribunal be created to prosecute those most responsible for ordering and assisting in massive rights violations – that killed about one-quarter of Timor-Leste’s people – and included rape, torture, disappearances, and forced displacement.

Fourteen years ago, Timor-Leste's Reception, Truth and Reconciliation Commission (CAVR) final report (Chega!) made a number of recommendations to countries that supported in Indonesia’s invasion and occupation of Timor-Leste. It also called for the United Nations to be prepared to institute an International Tribunal pursuant to Chapter VII of the UN Charter should other measures be deemed to have failed to deliver a sufficient measure of justice and Indonesia persists in the obstruction of justice. This is clearly the case.
