Timor Post, March 25, 2010 language source: Tetun - The Timorese National Police’s Operational Commander, Inspector Mateus Fernandes, has said that it is important to prevent terrorist before it appears in the country.
“It is important to prevent terrorists from now on,” Pinto said.
Inspector Fernandes made the comment yesterday, because the State Secretary for Security Francisco Guterres had recently said that there are no terrorist activities in the country.
Inspector Fernandes added that Timor-Leste is a young country and therefore it is important for the Parliament to create a strong law that can prevent terrorist’s movement in Timor-Leste.
He also said that the Government should better professionalise the country’s intelligence officers so that they can undertake their tasks professionally in the future.
