Some Government members start recruiting young people commit crimes
Radio Timor-Leste, November 10, 2010 language source: Tetun - Some Government members have started recruiting young Timorese to hold illegal activities in the country’s border and in the Capital of Dili.
Mahein Foundation affirmed that the illegal activities conducted by this group are smuggling cars, drugs and falsifying documents of the vehicles.
Director for Mahein Nelson Belo said those Government members engaged in such an illegal activity to make money. “The organized acts of crime begin by recruiting the young people by individuals in the Government officials by providing them with high wages,” Belo said.
Belo added that majority of the victims have not got any positive response from the police, because the police are not cooperative.
