Summary

Australia's and Foreign Minister Gareth Evan's ambiguous response to admitting East Timorese refugees into Australia is seen an appeasement of our neighbour Indonesia. Australia says that the Timorese are Portugese citizens and are not threfore eligible for refugee status, a disingenuous response at best - in stark contrast to the Timorese support given to Australian soldiers in World War II.--Information provided by Geoff Pryor.
