DAILY PRESS BRIEFING BY THE OFFICES OF THE SPOKESPERSON FOR THE SECRETARY-GENERAL

Question: About East Timor, thereís an article about Josť Ramos-Horta, and he said that they donít intend to change the terms of reference of their Truth and Reconciliation Commission to knock out amnesty, and he said he didnít think that what the Secretary-General said in July of the UN participating in that tribunal is official UN policy. So I guess Iím asking: Is it the UNís policy that it will not participate in that amnesty is given to, for war crimes, genocide, and Ö

Spokesperson: Iíll check on that for you. [She later confirmed that the United Nations policy had not changed since the July statement.]
