Fragile archipelago

Indonesia secrete
The Acheh Times is best viewed by:
 

Human rights violations by security officers is a source of
terror in the restive province of Acheh, rather than separatist rebels who the government tends to blame for all the trouble.

(Hendardi, The Chairman of the Indonesian Legal Aid and Human Rights Association)
 

 
 

 

 
 

 

"After the Napoleonic Wars, when the East Indies were restored to the Netherlands, the British tried to keep Dutch influence out of Acheh, and an 1824 treaty stipulated that no hostile actions be undertaken. This reservation was withdrawn in 1873, upon which the Dutch tried to conquer Acheh. More than 25 years of open warfare (the Achinese War) ensued between the Achinese and the Dutch. Tuanku Danel Syah, the Achinese sultan, finally surrendered to the Dutch in 1903 and was exiled in 1905. Until the end of Dutch colonial rule, however, the area was never fully pacified.".
