(7/14/2007)

Australian and Indonesian maritime law experts are coming to Bali in October 2007 where they will seek to seek progress in a continuing boundary dispute over sovereignty for islands and the surrounding waters in the Timor Sea.

Formatted as a public hearing, the Bali meetings, to be held in Nusa Dua, will allow legal experts and fisherman to air their thoughts on how to amend an existing treaty between Indonesia and Australia.

At dispute are agreed boundaries demarcating Indonesian, East Timor and Australian territories

According to a report published in the Jakarta Post, Indonesian fisherman are frequently arrested and their boats confiscated for straying into waters claimed by Australia near Pasir and Cartier Islands in the Timor Sea.

Fred Tanoni, who is a member of the International Association of Jurists for Maritime Delimitation in the Timor Sea and Pacific Rim told the Jakarta Post: "the cooperation agreement between Indonesia and Australia, which judicially causes Indonesia to suffer losses, has to be brought in line with international maritime law based on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) 1980 . . . Our dignity as a nation has been damaged. Aside from losing our rights in the Timor sea and Pasir and Cartier islands area, Indonesian fishermen have fallen victim to this agreement."
