|East Timor||BISHOP NASCIMENTO CALLS FOR PUNISHMENT OF WAR CRIMINALS|
Amid allegations of the destruction of potential war crimes trial evidence, Bishop Basilio Nascimento of Bacau has insisted that members of the militia and Indonesian Army responsible for committing crimes in East Timor should be punished.
Speaking to Portuguese radio, he said that prosecution and punishment did not preclude forgiveness. He said that the generals should be put on trial.
Meanwhile the European Union joined international bodies urging an international investigation commission.
