Kin of Indonesians killed by Dutch colonial troops awarded compensation

THE Dutch state must pay compensation to relatives of 11 men executed by colonial troops during Indonesia’s independence war in the late 1940s, judges ruled today. 

The Hague District Court ordered the state to pay damages ranging from €10,000 (RM47,400) to €123 to eight widows and four children of the men, who were killed in southern Sulawesi between 1946 to 1947.
