President Horta vetoes land law, Minister Lobato dissatisfied
Independente, March 29, 2012 language source: Tetun - Justice Minister Lucia Lobato said that she was dissatisfied with the President of the Republic, Jose Ramos Horta, because he had vetoed the land law which was approved by the National Parliament.
She said that she would appear in the Parliament to explain the law in more detail to the parliamentarians.
‘I will appear in the Parliament again to defend this law, because this law benefits all the citizens,” Minister Lobato said.
She added those groups that did not agree with the land law were the people who wanted a law which benefited the people who fled to other countries in 1975 when Indonesia invaded.
