HAK and JSMP consider Timor-Leste begins a mafia of justice

Diario Nacional, August 2, 2011 language source: Tetun - The Timorese Human Rights Association (HAK) and the Timorese Judicial System and Monitoring Program (JSMP) consider the judicial practitioners of Timor-Leste are practicing a justice mafia in the country.

"HAK is concerned about acts of crime such as corruption or maladministration involving Jose Gomes, an official of the Appellate Court."

"What he committed is bad as it damages the image of justice. This shows that the advisors for the Appellate Court were not functioning well and give space for the people to commit crimes," Said Rogerio Viegas Vicente.

Jose Gomes was accused of falsifying documents and shelving a homicide case involving one Miguel Arlindo Goncalves.

Director for JSMP, Luis de Oliveira Sampaio, said this mafia of justice is new in Timor-Leste. He added that those people who committed crimes should be tried in the court so that they can be responsible for the criminal acts
they commit.
