East Timor: Five Journalists
General Adenan (Foreign Ministry) spoke to me 11 June about our representations yesterday concerning the five journalists.1
- He said that he had been instructed to say that our request to the Indonesian Government to follow up matters concerning the five journalists had been 'rejected'.
- When I sought elaboration he said there was nothing more to add except to repeat that our request to the Indonesian Government had been rejected. He declined to discuss the matter further.2
