SIRA' s Supplementary Report on Julok Massacre. They found military boot marks and newly chopped down shrubs; then they found a heap of newly dug earth. Some of them started digging while others continue the search and found 3 more fresh earth heaps. All four holes contained corpses with torture marks such as stabbing, slicing, beating with blunt objects and strangling with ropes.
The IFA draws attention to the actions of the ROI armed forces on the morning of 9 August 2001. According to eye witness accounts as reported by SIRA (the respected Acheh Referendum Information Centre, whose chairman, Muhammad Nazar has been jailed for holding a peaceful demonstration in support of a referendum demand), military forces entered the barracks of a plantation area in East Acheh, ordered workers outside, forced them to hand over money then opened fire.
This is the most detailed and comprehensive account of the Julok massacre seen by TAPOL. While not being able to endorse the contents, TAPOL fully supports the call by SIRA for an independent investigation into the massacre and for measures to be taken to safeguard the lives of the wounded, the survivors and others in the area who are now at risk.
