Independente, March 28, 2012 language source: Tetun
The Timorese Anti-Corruption Commission (KAK) yesterday contacted the Timorese Finance Minister Emilia Pires to be a witness for corruption that allegedly happened within the Parliamentary Majority Alliance (AMP) Government.
Minister Emilia Pires refused to give her comment about her presence at KAK’s office, because KAK did not authorise her to make statements.
“I cannot say anything as KAK does not allow me to talk,” Minister Pires said. She added that, “I am here as KAK wants to ask about the financial system and they want me to become a witness for some cases.”
