By monitoring the legal system in East Timor and disseminating information about law and justice issues in East Timor to the global community, ETLJB seeks to promote the rule of law in East Timor, the protection of citizens' rights and scrutiny of the operation of the organs of the East Timorese state - the Parliament, the Government, the Courts and the security forces - to ensure constitutionality of laws and policies and to reveal violations of democratic principles and human rights.
ETLJB is a completely voluntary independent entity that receives no external funding. This ensures impartiality but it also means that operational costs are not funded.
Costs include the maintenance of the East Timor Legal News feed (which now has about 140 subscribers who receive a free East Timor Legal News email alert on new posts), hardware and software and so on.
