Summary
"When East Timorese grabbed their independence and, with the help of Australian-led forces, withstood the murderous onslaught of Indonesia-backed militiamen, the world saluted their courage. A new nation was born, dirt-poor but filled with hope and optimism. Seven years on, the Australian soldiers are back, trying to stop more bloodshed. Again, thousands of terrified East Timorese have become refugees. Now Xanana Gusmao walks in pain and weeps with his people. The key question of East Timor's future is bound inextricably to the present: What who is causing the present turmoil? Four Corners looks for an answer by peeling back the layers of this multi-tiered conflict that pits soldier against policeman, easterner against westerner and prime minister against president. Reporter Liz Jackson reports from East Timor's capital Dili and the outlying mountains, tapping into the secret agendas and shifting alliances of key players and showing how their power struggles are grinding down an already traumatised people. Jackson broke the recent story of the claims by former Falintil fighters that they had been hired by Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri to kill and intimidate opponents an allegation denied by Alkatiri. This report will also break news as well as providing insight into the evolving tragedy of East Timor " -- website (edited)
