Ita Nia Rai Press Release: Publication of Land Claims in Baucau

PRESS RELEASE 14 September 2009, National Directorate for Land, Property and Cadastral Services (DNTPSC). TIMOR-LESTE GOVERNMENT THROUGH ‘ITA NIA RAI’ OPENS PUBLIC DISPLAY OF LAND CLAIMS IN BAUCAU DISTRICT

Yesterday, 14 September 2009, the Government of Timor-Leste through the National Directorate for Land, Property and Cadastral Services (DNTPSC), published maps showing the initial results of land claims collection in Baucau District. The public display period for these claims began on 14 September 2009 and will end on 23 October 2009. The public display maps are posted at the district land and property (DTP) office in Baucau, at the District Administration building in Baucau, at the seat of the Bahu Suku Council, and also at the central DNTPSC office in Dili. The maps are also available on the internet via www.itaniarai.tl. This public display of land claims follows earlier publication that took place in Liquica and Manatuto districts.

The collection areas which are now open for Public Display are: Baucau District, Baucau Sub-District, Suku Bahu, Aldeia Ana-Ulo, Ro-Ulo and Suku Tirilolo, Aldeia Lutumutu. A total of 217 land claims are included in this public display process.

In accordance with Ministerial Decree 229/2008 from the Ministry of Justice, the public display of land claims has the objective of making public all the results of land claims collection in the areas mentioned above. Once the public display period is closed, no more claims or counter-claims will be accepted in those areas. Therefore it is extremely important that everyone who has land in the aforementioned areas checks the public display maps for their area.

To make a new claim or a counter-claim (disagree with an existing claim), community members must go in person or send a representative to the DTP office in Baucau, any day during working hours. Additionally claims will be accepted at the central DNTPSC office in Dili, every Tuesday between 9:00AM and 12:00PM.

An advantage of the public display process is that it guarantees the transparency of the land claims collection, by making the results available to the community and the wider public. Community participation in this process is very important in order to correct any errors and contribute to creating a claims database with accurate and complete information.

This activity is conducted with support from USAID through the ‘Ita Nia Rai’ project. This project is a 5-year, $10 million initative to support the National Directorate for Land, Property and Cadastral Services and the Ministry of Justice in order to develop a sustainable land administration system in Timor-Leste.
