Death in East Timor

  • CAPPP1992
  • Item
  • February 10th, 1992

This document was sourced from Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP).
Titled, Death in East Timor, the document is part of Third World Network Features and was received February 10th, 1992. It is an account of the experience of a mother, Helen Todd: a Malaysian freelance journalist whose son was killed by the November 12th, 1991 Santa Cruz massacre in East Timor. Her son, Kamal Bamadhaj, was the only foreigner killed during the shooting. Helen Todd emphasises her difficulty in discovering the reason for the fate of her son and expresses her belief that it demonstrates the misinformation and mendacity of Indonesia’s government. She also discusses Kamal’s observations of the Indonesian regime’s tactics to hide realities when discussing East Timor with foreigners. Next, she provides eye witness accounts of the shooting of the procession to the Dili cemetery. Finally, she presents Kamal’s observations of the attitudes of the Timorese, especially Timorese youth, before the march.
