LtCol (Art) Kamiso Miran
Military district commander (Dandim 1639) Ambeno (Oecussi enclave), till August 1999
The Sakunar militia in Ambeno was led by the violent Laurentino 'Moko' Soares. Its headquarters were located in the district military headquarters. Kamiso Miran was mentioned in an indictment for crimes against humanity against the Sakunar militia in a Dili court in October 2001, as one of the government officials responsible for initiating the militia's activities. His chief of staff (kasdim), known only by his initials, was Capt (Inf) I Gst W, while his intelligence chief was Lt (Inf) Djumijo – these would have had day-to-day contact with the militia.
Kamiso Miran was replaced shortly before the ballot by LtCol Bambang Sungesti.
Kamiso Miran graduated from the military academy in 1981. In 1994, while still a Major, he ran the refugee camp on Galang Island, near Singapore. He presided over a venal and exploitative regime where corruption and forced sex were commonplace. At the time in 1997 when he was appointed to the territorial command of Ambeno district (this is the Oecussi enclave of East Timor within West Timor) Miran was commander of the 15th Air Defence Artillery Command, based in Semarang, Java.
