President suharto of Indonesia
He came from a liberty loving forebears. His grand father and father had both been deported by Portugal's dictatorship because of their political activities, and Jose himself at th age of eighteen had been deported from East Timor to Mozambique by the Portuguese colonial administration for ridiculing Portugal's "civilizing mission".
He came back when FRETILIN had won a civil war with the conservative UDT and proclaimed Independence on 28 Nov. 1975 after the withdrawal of Portugal from East Timor. The new Govt. appointed Jose as Minister of external-affairs to focus their cause abroad.
He went abroad for recognition of his Govt. and while coming back he heard that Indonesia had made an invasion to East Timor on 7 Dec. 1975.
