IPAC: Justice at the Crossroads in Timor-Leste


IPAC09-07-15

Justice At the Crossroads in Timor-Leste, the latest report from the Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), examines the fall-out from the controversial decision to expel international judges last year and the possibilities opened up by full “Timorisation” of the judiciary. The report’s detailed list of recommendations underscores the amount of work that needs to done, especially on professional training, access to justice, and meeting basic fair trial standards. A review of the judiciary now underway, mandated by parliament at the time of the 2014 expulsions, provides an opportunity to address what the report terms “the manifold ills of the justice sector”.
