“Australia’s government has sent a quiet signal to Indonesia about mounting concern over human rights conditions in Indonesia’s restive Papua region. The Rudd government — facing accusations it’s too quite on the issue — has allowed its Senators to support a motion in Parliament’s upper house that calls for pressure from Canberra on Indonesia to allow the return of the International Red Cross to West Papua.

Presenter:Linda Mottram
