East Timor - Australia's murky role

James Dunn, former diplomat and policy advisor comments on the release of Australian security files under the 30 year rule, that confirms Australia's collusion with Indonesia in the takeover of Timor Leste during the period when Indonesia was carrying out near genocidal, serial, human rights abuses. Jim suggests that Australia should share with Indonesia, some of the accountability for the horrific crimes committed at that time.

James Dunn is one of the most well-informed and principled commentators on the Timor-Leste situation. How sad that he was not able to convince the Australian government to take a different course. Even now - when I want to know the most likely 'truth' of an event I look for his commentary. Thanks, Mr, Dunn.
