F-FDTL-PNTL recall military attributes and weapons
Suara Timor Lorosa’e, December 1, 2010 language source: Tetun - Police Commissioner Longuinhos Monteiro said that local residents and civilian security officers had handed over military attributes and other facilities to the police voluntarily.
The facilities which have been handed to the commander of the PNTL included police and military uniforms, tear-gas, military emblems, knives and so forth.
Monteiro said the civilian security companies and the ex-guerilla fighter organization CPDRDTL had also given their contribution to the PNTL in recalling those facilities of the military.
PNTL (police) is now recalling these items as the Government through the council of the Ministers released a resolution that allows the PNTL and F-FDTL to recall military and police equipment used by civilian security officers and local residents.
