10 August 1999
I am writing in reference to document E/CN.4/Sub.2/1999/4 of the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights submitted pursuant to resolution 1998/3 of the Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities in which the High Commissioner for Human Rights was requested to inquire into the security situation of individuals listed in its annex.
In this regard, I should like to draw your attention to paragraph 12 of the document, where it is written that there is no information available on Mr. Kasiepo which was to be provided by the Government of Indonesia.
I am surprised to see that the information provided by my office, which was sent on 3 August 1999, was not incorporated into the above-mentioned document. Furthermore, I am disconcerted to see that the note from the Office of the High Commissioner requesting information was only sent to my office on 2 July 1999 while the document containing the result of her inquiry was published on 5 July 1999. This situation I feel is quite unfair and I would therefore request that this letter, along with the annexed response from my Government,* be issued as a document of the Sub-Commission and that the above-mentioned document (E/CN.4/Sub.2/1999/4) be corrected accordingly.
* The annex (not available in electronic form) is reproduced as received, in English only.
