Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bans U.S. Military Assistance to Indonesia

HeadlineSep 28, 2000

In Washington, D.C., the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday passed legislation which bans all U.S. military assistance to Indonesia. The committee passed the measure unanimously by voice vote. The bill now goes to the Senate floor. The legislation bans military cooperation with and assistance to the Indonesian armed forces until the president certifies certain conditions have been met by the Indonesian government and military, including safe return of refugees to East Timor and judicial accountability for military and militia members responsible for human rights violations in East Timor, Aceh and other parts of Indonesia.
