"The Dili District Court has sent an official letter to me, they did not ask the Parliament to remove the political immunity and it puts me in a difficult situation," Lasama said.

Lasama added that the letter sent by the court to the Parliament was to inform the parliament about the judicial process of criminal acts committed by Deputy Prime Minister for Social issues, Jose Luis Guterres, as he was accused by the Public Prosecution of engaging in abuse of power and corruption.
