  • Description

    INDONESIAN AUTHORITIES ARE STILL DETAINING A NUMBER OF CHINESE SIX MONTHS AFTER THE DIPLOMATIC DISPUTE BETWEEN INDONESIA AND THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA WHICH RESULTED IN THE CLOSURE OF THEIR RESPECTIVE EMBASSIES IN PEKING AND DJAKARTA.

    THIS WEEK A VISNEWS CAMERAMAN WAS ALLOWED TO VISIT A DETENTION CENTRE NEAR DJAKARTA WHERE AN ESTIMATED 50 PEOPLE, CHINESE NATIONALS AND PEOPLE OF CHINESE DESCENT, ARE BEING HELD.

    THE VISNEWS CAMERAMAN REPORTED THAT THE DETAINEES AT THE CENTRE HE VISITED WERE AGED BETWEEN 60 AND 20. NONE HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO TRIAL, AND ARE BEING DETAINED FOR "HAVING BEEN INVOLVED IN SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES AGAINST INDONESIA".

    IT IS BELIEVED TO BE THE FIRST TIME A CAMERAMAN HAS BEEN PERMITTED TO VISIT ONE OF THE DETENTION CENTRES IN INDONESIA WHERE CHINESE PEOPLE ARE BEING HELD. THERE IS NO INDICATION FROM INDONESIAN AUTHORITIES HOW MANY OF THE DETAINEES ARE CITIZENS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA.

    THE DETAINEES ARE GUARDED BY PARATROOPERS IN A SPECIAL SECTION OF A PRISON OUTSIDE DJAKARTA, AND ARE REPORTED TO BE STILL REGULARLY QUESTIONED.
