Biography/History

Freelance journalist and author renowned for her reporting on East Timor since 1975. Jolliffe witnessed the first incursions of Indonesian regular troops into East Timor in September 1975, reported on the death of her five colleagues at Balibo in October, and was evacuated from Dili by the International Red Cross four days before Indonesian paratroopers attacked the capital on 7 December 1975. In 1978 Jolliffe moved to Portugal, where she continued to follow the East Timor story and to work as a correspondent for The guardian, The Sunday times, The age, The Sydney morning herald and the BBC, among others. She now lives in Darwin and reports regularly from East Timor.
