United Nations Police (UNPol) in East Timor Security Briefings Archive 2006 - 2008
ETLJB 28 November 2013 - Between November 2006 and June 2008, I compiled and archived the daily security briefings from the United Nations Police (UNPol) in East Timor on the East Timor Legal Information Site (ETLIS). ETLIS has now become defunct with the legal news and information function taken over by this site, the East Timor Law and Justice Bulletin. The legal news reports that were published on ETLIS prior to the creation of the East Timor Law and Justice Bulletin were all republished on the East Timor Legal News Archive 2006 - 2008.
Looking back at the UNPol security briefings that had been published on ETLIS, I realised that they constituted an important source of historical information about what was going on in the country at that time and so I decided to republish all of those security reports on a separate blog which I have named the United Nations Police in East Timor Security Briefings 2006 -2008.
For anyone interested in an historical look back at the security situation in East Timor during that period, I am sure that you will find the security briefings full of interesting information and I would encourage you to take a look at some of the posts. I have so far only posted 80 of them and have a couple of hundred more to go so please bear with me as I develop this record. I hope that it will prove to be a useful source of historical information for anyone researching the recent history of Timor-Leste.
