Australian government presses ahead with plans to dominate East Timor

21-06-2006 01:05

Compel Alkatiri to make that decision
Neither Horta nor his Australian backers want to test this “tremendous support” at elections due next year. “The problem is, obviously, can the country afford the next six months, the next nine months of this continued pressure on the prime minister to resign?” Horta asked. “Can we afford this increasing loss of credibility of the government and the poor image of the country? Or should the prime minister say, ‘Well, I step aside in the interests of my own party. It seems that I am a liability to my own party, if not the country’.” The threat of criminal charges is obviously designed to compel Alkatiri to make that decision.

On July 11, 2006 the issue of the unnecessary Compulsory Purchase Orders for our homes and businesses went to Public Inquiry. For those of you who have been to public meetings and been told by the council and their partners that these houses are definitely coming down - this is a lie. This is their preferred option, which will be decided by Public Inquiry, and then by Ruth Kelly MP, for the Government.

TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE? necati zontul torture trial without witness or testimony!

20-06-2006 16:46

necati zontul and front cover torture cartoon film "My big fat greek... welcome"
(I think we should point out that both the writer and the victim of these dreadful incidents have been Oxford residents for the last few years, so it is legitimate for them to publish to Oxford Indymedia. eileen)
Necati was raped and tortured by Greek coastguards on the island of Crete in 2001, while an immigration detainee. Today, 5 years after the event, 5 men found guilty in 2004 (though charged with lesser crimes of abuse and sexual assault) remain in uniform. An appeal that we understand will see their acquittal today takes place in the absence of Necati and in the absence of his evidence. Necati's letters to the court have been ignored, and his attempt to telephone the court revealed astonishing bias in favour of the guilty coastguard officers. such is justice in Greece. The Prime Minister's office and the President's office have so far declined to comment.

Multiple Arrests in Turkmenistan.

20-06-2006 13:21

Turkmenistan is one of the world's most repressive regimes. Recently press attention has fallen on the increased EU trade with the country- in the form of Gas and Textile imports. The Turkmen regime's response has been another crackdown on human rights workers in the country. Many have been arrested on spurious charges and are being held, and tortured, in Turkmen prisons.
