Excelentíssima Senhora (1993-09)

This document contains two letters. One letter (written in 1993-09-17) is written by Catherine Scott from the Catholic Institute for International Relations and sent to Luisa Pereira from CDPM. The letter by Catherine Scott contains a list of the people detained following the demonstration at Bishop Belo’s residence in East Timor. The other letter (written in 1993-09-10), which Catherine Scott had attached, is directed to Hillary Clinton from the Timorese mothers of those that have either disappeared, were captured or killed following the Santa Cruz Massacre. The mothers express their sorrow for their lost ones, state some human rights violations that are occurring in East Timor, and ask for recognition and action from the international community.
