Citizen assaulted by soldier
Radio Timor-Leste, April 4, 2012 language source: Tetun - A Timorese Defense Force (F-FDTL) soldier is believed to have assaulted a local resident named Francisco Sico Botak in Debos village, in Suai of Covalima District.
MP Francisco Branco from Fretilin during the Parliamentary plenary session on Monday said such an attitude was not good as it was against powerless people. Branco also called on the competent institutions to pay attention to this case because it was violating the democratic rights of the citizens.
The Parliamentary President Fernando de Araujo was also concerned about the act of a member of F-FDTL assaulting a resident in Suai was not good. Lasama added that he would take this case to the court to try in the future.
