Independente, March 13, 2012 language source: Tetun - The Criminal Investigation Service (SIC) Commander Superintendent Calisto Gonzaga has confirmed that the suspect who killed Damiao Borges da Silva at Aitula Fuel fuel station was now facing provisional imprisonment.
“We already detained the suspect and jailed him provisionally and the suspect is waiting for further legal proceedings,” Gonzaga said.
He added that, the incident was caused by resentment between victim and the suspect. Timorese Police Commander, Commissioner of Police Longuinhos Monteiro affirmed that the police have submitted the case to the Public Prosecution and therefore they were waiting for an authorisation letter from the Public Prosecution which would allow them to continue processing the case.
