Jakarta general guilty over Timor

An Indonesian general has been sentenced to five years in prison for failing to prevent massacres during East Timor’s break with Indonesia in 1999. The Jakarta court convicted Brigadier General Noer Muis of failing to stop two bloody attacks on civilians. He is the highest-ranking Indonesian officer to be convicted. At least 1,000 people were killed when pro-Jakarta militias went on the rampage in East Timor before, during and after the Timorese voted overwhelmingly to break away from Indonesian rule.
