CAVR report handed to UN

Today in New York, the President of Timor-Leste, Xanana Gusmão, handed the 2,500 page Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation (CAVR) report to the Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan (see Juggling Pragmatic Politics with Bloody Past). On this notable day, I would like to remind the Government of Timor-Leste and the United Nations Security Council of the following passage from the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, dated 31 October 2000:

“11. Emphasizes the responsibility of all States to put an end to impunity and to prosecute those responsible for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes including those relating to sexual violence against women and girls, and in this regard, stresses the need to exclude these crimes, where feasible from amnesty provisions;”
