Human Rights Watch has released a report on police brutality in East Timor.
Over the past two years police abuse has become one of East Timor's most worrying human rights problems. Police officers regularly use excessive force during arrests, and beat detainees once they are in custody. This behavior seems to have become so common that officers rarely try to hide their actions from the general public. Human Rights Watch experienced no shortage of cases to document wherever we went in East Timor.
An extremely detailed report providing more evidence that East Timor is heading down the third world basket case road.
