|South Korea||BELO SAYS DEMOCRACY NEEDS PRESS FREEDOM|
Restoration of democracy in East Timor depends more than any thing else on freedom of the press and solidarity among the organisations of civil society, according to Bishop Carlos Belo of Dili.
Bishop Belo was speaking in Seoul during a human rights convention. He emphasised that the commitment to justice, peace and human rights are an integral part of the evangelical message and that the Church should commit itself "so that these fundamental values shall be respected".
