Diario Nacional, January 20, 2011 language source: Tetun - The State Secretary for Security Francisco Guterres has confirmed that the police were already investigating the recent conflict in Komoro that left Agostinho Preira dead at the scene.
"We are waiting for this case and I have instructed that the case be investigated, adding that if the findings show that the policewere late in responding to the incident than it is their fault and we will see all this things," Guterres said.
Guterres added that the police had tried to respond to the incident but unfortunately they were too late to reach the scene, adding that actually the Malaysian Federal Police should respond the incident earlier but
