Timor rebels surrender
Tuesday 08 December 1992
The rebels pledged loyalty to Jakarta, which annexed East Timor in 1976 a year after the departure of its Portuguese colonial rulers. The United Nations does not recognise the annexation. 'They also said they were ready to be punished if in future they violated (East Timor's) integration (with Indonesia),' Joao Ximenes, of the rebel group Fretilin, was quoted as saying. The statement was made to local government and military officials in Bacau, near the East Timor capital of Dili, where Fretilin's chief, Xanana Gusmao, was captured last month.
