Subject: Names of some of the dead in Alas
Date: Sun, 22 Nov 1998 21:47:22 GMT
From: TAPOL

This is the message received from CNRT (Dili).

I.The name of the people killed by Indonesian military:

1.Vicente Xavier, the tribal chief of Tai Tudak. He was shot dead by Battalion 744 on 13 November 1988 at Aubariqui, Fatuberliu.

2.Victor, a young man from Village Tutuluro, Same. He was shot dead on 16 November 1988.

3.Adriano Fernandes, a young man from Tai-Tudak, Alas. He was shot dead on 9 November 1988.

4.Duarte, the village chief of Tutuluro, Same. Shot dead on 13 November 1998.

5. Domingos Mandato, the vice secretary of Mhaquidan, Alas. Shot dead on 13 November 1998.

6. Fransisco Xavier, killed at Turiscai.

>From the same source, CNRT in Dili, it was reported that 20 people have been detained and 20 people are missing.

It is believed that many people have been killed at Taitudak, Alas but information because nobody is allowed to enter to the location. It's totally blockaded. It is same as the Dili massacre when only people with licences could go out and in. Even Red Cross could only get the information from military.
