Groups Urge Any New Government of Indonesia to Pursue Justice and Respect Rights
June 30, 2014 - In a statement released today human rights groups urged the next government of Indonesia "to break with the past [and] fully and meaningfully address the legacy of impunity for past human rights violations," adding that "the continued lack of accountability for past and ongoing violations of human rights threatens lasting progress."
