Violence in East Timor after the ballot has been interpreted as crimes against humanity. Thus, justice was imperative. Below are the indictments and judgments made by Indonesian authorities on the people who were identified as the main organizers and perpetrators of the violence. The documents were retrieved from The Indonesian Ad Hoc Court Tribunal for East Timor section of the U.C. Berkley War Crimes Studies Center. Some of the documents are missing; they will be uploaded as they are found.
As with the conflict, some international NGO’s followed closely the process of providing justice to East Timor. The common denominator of their analyses is found on doubts of the commitment of Indonesian authorities to adequately offer justice to the people of East Timor, with serious concerns that the perpetrators could be left unpunished. Reports by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the International Crisis Group are included here. Additionally, there is an evaluation conducted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees of its own repatriation and reintegration program in East Timor after the post-electoral violence.
