Regional delegation in Jakarta - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC established a presence in Indonesia in 1979 and in Timor-Leste following its independence in 2002. In each country, the ICRC supports the National Society in boosting its emergency response capacities. The ICRC cooperates with the authorities to improve penitentiary standards, while seeking to visit detainees and monitor conditions. It works with the armed forces (and the police in Indonesia) to promote the inclusion of IHL in their training. It conducts activities with universities to further the study of IHL and humanitarian principles. In Timor-Leste, it provides support to the families of missing persons.
