James Dunn (diplomat)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Dunn

Born (1928-01-06) 6 January 1928 (age 91)
OccupationPublic servant, diplomat

James Stanley Dunn AM (born 6 January 1928) is a former Australian public servant and diplomat. He was Australia's consul in Portuguese Timor from 1962 to 1964.

In 1977 Dunn's report on war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Indonesian troops in East Timor was released, prompting international attention.[1] He alleged that American weapons had been used in the Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975.[2] He also argued that Australia's policy related to East Timor was inadequate.[3]

His book Timor: A People Betrayed (published 1983) was a tribute to the tragedy of the Timorese. The book was launched by Gordon McIntosh at the Lakeside Hotel in Canberra.[4] In a review published in Woroni, Dunn was praised for his sincere tone.[5] J.A.C. Mackie, writing for The Canberra Times wrote that the book was "disappointingly unconvincing".[6]

In the 2001 Queen's Birthday Honours, Dunn was made a Member of the Order of Australia for "service to humanity as an advocate for the rights of the East Timorese."[7]
