Jim Dunn, former diplomat, adviser to Timorese President Jose Ramos Horta, and Human Rights activist, reviews the traumatic events of the last week in Timor Leste. The stampede of much mainstream media in Australia to label the attack on the President and Prime Minister of Timor Leste a coup is ill advised, he says, and it would be misjudging the situation to say that Timor Leste has been further destabilised by the events of last week. And the jury is still out on what exactly was Reynado's motivation.
