Australiaâ€™s former Foreign Affairs minister Gareth Evans was shocked and surprised at having his appalling historical record brought back into the light. But what is amazing, is that it is so rarely mentioned.
A couple of weeks ago Evans was accused of â€śsupporting atrocitiesâ€ť in East Timor when he was foreign affairs minister.
The accusation came from Stephen Zunes, Professor of Politics at the University of San Francisco.
He was visiting Melbourne and called a spade a spade during a public forum with poor Gareth in attendance.
