Suara Timor Loro Sa’e, July 26, 2010 language source: Tetun - The Timorese Defecse Force (F-FDTL)’s Brigadier General Lere Annan Timur has called on the Timorese veterans to amicably resolve their recent insult case engaging Suara Timor Loro Sa’e newspaper and Dili district Police Commander, Pedro Belo.
Lere said this case should be resolved amicably; the veterans could not destroy this country, as they had fought for the country’s independence. “I just want to say that we the veterans are still united. But if one veteran makes a mistake, it should not be generalised.
Sometime the politicians like to politicise these things. If one veteran is guilty not the veteran institution, do not politicise it and say all the veterans,” Lere said.
He does believe that the veterans will resolve this case amicably, as they had fought for justice and human rights during the country’s resistance. (ETLJB Editor: last updated 02/08/2010 the word "not" was removed from between the words "will" and "resolve" Thanks to a reader for pointing this out.)
