East Timorese Roman Catholic bishop and exiled activist who, along with José Ramos-Horta, received the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize for their work towards a just and peaceful solution to the conflict in East Timor. Invaded by Indonesia 21 year ago, the conflict has led to the deaths of more than 200 hundred thousand people.
