Scope and content

Report by CDPM of a letter to the Austrian ambassador in Indonesia appealing for solidarity with the Timorese who are refugees in the Austrian embassy in Indonesia and asking the Austrian ambassador not to give up on the cause, even with the mounting pressure from Indonesia. The document also states that CDPM directed an appeal to around 30 organizations from Portuguese civil society to ask for pressure on the Austrian ambassador in Portugal regarding the same situation. The appeal had two objectives: make them feel the pressure of Portuguese public opinion and give the Austrian government arguments to use with the Indonesians about sending the 6 refugees to Portugal.
Annexes: report of the meeting with the ambassador and briefing of the refugees' history.
