Subject: Call for Information on Timor Cover-up
Date: Mon, 24 Aug 1998 10:16:29 +1000

Call for Information on Timor Cover-up

Following the publication of the International Commission of Jurists (Australian Section) report showing problems with an Australian Government inquiry into the deaths of the six journalists in Balibo and Dili in 1975, a call is being made for new information.

Any person holding documentation, photographs, film or information relating to the deaths of the six journalists is requested to make contact with an international group investigating the deaths.

The group has the belief that the public has the right to know what governments have done and continue to do in their name.

All information will be treated sensitively and confidences will be respected.

Please forward information or contact the group through: International Group, PO Box 9, Sydney 2038, Australia or e-mail to, or to the sender of this e-mail.

Many thanks.

For further background on the Balibo killings, and the excellent articles of Roger East (one Australian journalist killed in East Timor), in the days leading to full-scale invasion see the ETRA ( website.
