be unsuccessful, and that those loyal to Indonesia would be rewarded when they regained control of the area. Most of the worst acts of the period, including the Liquiçá Church Massacre, were committed by these East Timorese groups, albeit often with support of the Indonesian military. Eurico Guterres was the most famous member of these groups. The International Police assigned to the unit then would carry the case on through from an investigative side. The International Police portion of the unit primarily worked out of Liquiçá (Liquiçá (district)) and its surrounding districts, whereas the military element worked island wide within all of East Timor. Initially commanded by Steve Minhinnet of Great Britain, the unit was later commanded by American (United States of America) investigator Karl Clark. Throughout its existence, it relied heavily on intelligence information collected by American intelligence officer Alan Williams. With the rotation of new International Police into East Timor, the unit was eventually disbanded toward the end of 2000, and absorbed into the Human Rights investigative unit in Dili, called the Serious Crimes Unit. Karl Clark, an original member of the unit, eventually played a pivotal role in Human Rights investigations in East Timor, while other unit police members moved on to other UN mission locations.

East Timor

'''East Timor''' ( (5,400 sq mi). mne.gov.tl

East Timor was colonised by Portugal in the 16th century, and was known as Portuguese Timor until Portugal's decolonisation of the country. In late 1975, East Timor declared its independence but later that year was invaded (Indonesian invasion of East Timor) and occupied (Indonesian occupation of East Timor) by Indonesia and was declared Indonesia's 27th province the following year. In 1999, following the United Nations-sponsored act of self-determination, Indonesia relinquished control of the territory, and East Timor became the first new sovereign state (List of sovereign states) of the 21st century on May 20, 2002. After independence, East Timor became a member of the United Nations and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries. In 2011, East Timor announced its intention to gain membership status in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations by submitting a letter of application to become its eleventh member. East Timor Bid to Join ASEAN Wins 'Strong Support', Bangkok Post, date: 31 January 2011. It is one of only two predominantly Christian (Christianity in Asia) nations in Southeast Asia, the other being the Philippines.

East Timor has a lower-middle-income economy. It continues to suffer the after-effects of a decades-long struggle for independence (Indonesian occupation of East Timor) against Indonesian occupation, which severely damaged the country's infrastructure and killed at least a hundred thousand people. The country is placed 128th (List of countries by Human Development Index) on the Human Development Index (HDI).
