Indonesia pact should be vetted by Senate
Greens Leader Bob Brown has moved for a Senate inquiry into the Howard government's proposed security pact with Indonesia.
"There is great public disquiet in Australia about this pact, especially as it will contain a clause to have Australia endorse Jakarta's military control of West Papua," said Senator Brown.
"The Prime Minster should consult parliament before signing a treaty with President Yudhoyono," Senator Brown said.
