Indonesian military allegedly tortured Catholic in chapel
CWN - March 30, 2011
Members of the Indonesian military allegedly tortured youths in an ecumenical chapel at a military base. One of the youths, a 24-year-old Catholic, has died.
The reported torture “desecrates a place of worship,” said Father Paulus Nahak, head of the Diocese of Atambua’s commission for justice and peace.
The youths were taken to the military base because they were drunk and attempted to rob a soldier, according to a UCA News report.
