East Timor: Report on Violence in East Timor

Tumbleweed in Timor Lorosae links to a report on the violence in East Timor earlier this year. The report is published by an independent commission. “On my way in today, i saw a cleaning lady reading a document, with her brows furrowed in concentration. Hours later, i walked past her again and this time she was surrounded by at least 4 others who were keenly listening to her as she read out word by word the report in Tetum.” Tetum is one of the languages in East timor.
