Fretilin threatens to take Infrastructure Fund allocation to court
Diario Nacional, January 28, 2011 language source: Tetun - MP Arsenio Bano from Fretilin said Fretilin would take the case of the Infrastructure Funds totaling US$ 282 million to court as the Government has not clearly explained how the money will be spent.
"We are analysing the fund in one hand, but in the other hand we will take the funds for infrastructure to the court because it is important they are based on the legal requirements which exist in the country," MP Bano said.
MP Bano made the statements because MPs from the Parliamentary Majority Alliance proposed to increase the infrastructure funds to US$ 282 million.
MP pedro dos Martires da Costa from the National Congress for the Timorese Reconstruction (CNRT) said there was no need for the AMPs' MPs to respond to the questions from Fretilin's MPs because they proposed to increase the amount of money as a technical issue and not a political case.
