Human rights watch urges Indonesian govt to say sorry – Channel NewsAsia

JAKARTA, Indonesia: Efforts at national reconciliation are underway in Indonesia after a state-sponsored inquiry indicated gross human rights abuse and crimes against humanity during the 1965-66 government-led anti-communist purge.

An estimated half a million Indonesians were killed and a million others were said to have been jailed and tortured in the aftermath of an attempt to overthrow President Sukarno in September 1965.

Indonesia’s National Commission on Human Rights which carried out the inquiry has urged the government to offer a formal apology and compensation to the victims.
