March 24, 2010Journalist Allan Nairn Facing Possible Arrest in
Indonesia for Exposing US-Backed Forces Assassinated Civilians

In Indonesia, investigative journalist Allan Nairn is facing possible
arrest for exposing that US-backed Indonesian armed forces assassinated
a series of civilian activists last year. Since Allan Nairn broke the
news of the assassination program on Democracy Now! on Friday, the
Indonesian press has been buzzing with the allegations. A military
spokesman told the Jakarta Globe that the military is considering legal
action against Nairn. Earlier today, Nairn issued a public challenge to
the Indonesian military to arrest him so that he could face off with
the military in open court.
