E Timor massacre suspect moved

The Indonesian Embassy in Dili has confirmed an Indonesian citizen
accused of being part of a massacre in East Timor in 1999 was moved
from Dili’s prison on Sunday.

Martenus Bere was arrested in East Timor after he legally entered the
country two weeks ago.

Victor Sambuaga, an Indonesian embassy official in Dili, says Mr Bere
was moved from the prison to the Indonesian embassy on Sunday – the day
East Timor celebrated the 10-year anniversary of its independence

Mr Sambuaga says Indonesia is trying to negotiate for Mr Bere to be
deported to Indonesia.

“Based on his nationality it is the obligation for the Indonesian
Government, including our embassy in Dili, to give protection and best
service to our Indonesian nationals abroad,” Mr Sambuaga said.
