Petition on Justice in the Timor Sea


To the Hon John Howard MP, Prime Minister:


We the undersigned seek justice in the settlement of maritime boundaries between Australia and East Timor.


We ask that the Australian Government:

* Accept the sovereignty of East Timor over the oil and gas deposits which are closer to East Timor than Australia.

* Accept the request of the East Timorese Government to meet monthly to negotiate permanent maritime boundaries with East Timor as quickly as possible.

* Accept the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice on issues of maritime boundaries and accept the compulsory dispute resolution mechanisms of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982 with regard to Australia’s maritime boundaries.

* Place in trust (escrow) revenues received from disputed areas immediately outside the Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA) established by the 20 May 2002 Timor Sea Treaty, for distribution between Australia and East Timor after the maritime boundary dispute between the two countries has been settled.
