Suara Timor Lorosa’e, November 11, 2010 language source: Tetun - MP Rui Menezes from the Democratic Party (PD) has called on the Public Prosecution to hold a thorough investigation into the foreign businessperson who had smuggled money totalling US$ 55 thousand through the International Airport of Nicolau Lobato.
“It is important to consider this case and if is it possible then this case should be taken to the court for further legal process,” MP Menezes said.
MP Menezes said what had been done by the foreign enterpriser by smuggling money through the airport was an offence to the Timorese Customs law.
MP Inacio Moreira also urged the Public Prosecution to investigate this case profoundly because bringing money in cash US$ 55 thousand to the country is act of crime.
