EAST TIMOR: UN indicts General Wiranto for crimes against humanity

The United Nations Serious Crimes Unit has indicted General Wiranto, the former governor of East Timor, Abilio Soares and six other senior military officers, for murder and persecution in the lead-up to East Timor's independence in 1999. But with the Indonesian Government unlikely to hand any of the men over for trial, will justice ever be done?

Presenter/Interviewer: Kanaha Sabapathy

Speakers: Asmara Nababan, former secretary general of the Human Rights Commission of Indonesia; Hassan Wirajuda, Indonesia's foreign minister; Stuart Alford, the UN prosecutor
