Aniceto Guterres Lopes

Aniceto Guterres Lopes (born 1967 in Tapo, Maliana, Bobonaro) is an East Timorese lawyer living in Dili. He co-founded the Human Rights and Justice Foundation (Yayasan HAK) in 1996, in order to offer free legal services to human rights victims, when East Timor was still ruled by Indonesian armed forces. He became one of the seven leaders of East Timor's Commission for Reception, Truth, and Reconciliation from its establishment in 2002.[1]

Aniceto Guterres Lopes was awarded the 2003 Ramon Magsaysay Award for Emergent Leadership, for his courageous stand for justice.[2]
