Radio e Televizaun de Timor-Leste, March 28, 2012 language source: Tetun - The Timorese National Police (PNTL) member who is believed to have threatened Chief of Triloka Village is now under investigation. In regard to this case, the Timorese Police Commander Commissioner of Police Longuinhos Monteiro, called on his members to be apolitical.
“We already have confirmation that no PNTL members are involved in any act of politics, and if it happens then the institution has its own regulation to deal with the case immediately.
The case is now in the process and will be submitted to the Public Prosecution for further legal proceedings,” Monteiro said.
He said that the police members were also human beings and therefore they can also make mistakes or engage in act of crime but everything would be processed legally.
