East Timor: Pardon

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the President of East Timor, Jose Ramos-Horta, has granted pardons to 23 "rebels" who were "involved in attacks in 2008 during which he was shot in the back and almost died."

It is reported that Ramos-Horta granted the pardons, at least in part, because of his belief that the "rebels" were "also victims."
