Suara Timor Lorosa'e, February 26, 2010 language source: Tetun -  The Timorese Immigration Police Department Director, Boavida Ribeiro, has said that his department has deported eight Indonesian women for using their tourist visa to conduct business in the country.

According to Mr. Ribeiro the women were using the visas illegally to engage in prostitution.

Mr. Ribeiro says this is quite a common problem in the country and consequently the immigration police will be holding operations in the taverns and bars in order to check foreigners’ visas as a way of reducing prostitution in the country.
