Maliana is not located in nearby Indonesia. As the Wikipedia article linked to shows, Maliana is a city in East Timor (The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste). However, at one time, East Timor was occupied by Indonesia (December 1975 to October 1999) — again, see Wikipedia: Indonesian occupation of East Timor.
There are dreadful accounts of those last days of occupation.

Ambassadors & journalists see for themselves. In what was a very rare visit by outsiders to Indonesia-occupied East Timor, Australia’s ambassador to Indonesia, Tom Critchley travelled to the territory on 6-7 September 1978. He was with a party of 10 other-country representatives and a number of foreign journalists. The entourage was accompanied by the Indonesian Foreign Minister, Mochtar Kusumaatmadja. The group visited Dili, Baucau, Maliana and Remexio.
