NEW YORK—An open letter to Kofi Annan cosigned by 12 human rights groups, including The Open Society Justice Initiative, expresses concern that that the report of the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation in Timor-Leste has not yet been referred to the United Nations Security Council for discussion.

The letter asserts that the commission's report represents an "authoritative and exhaustive account of the views of the people of Timor-Leste on issues surrounding justice," and demands wider dissemination of the report: "We urge you to explore ways to end impunity for crimes against humanity committed in Timor-Leste throughout the illegal Indonesian occupation."
