Timor Post, March 24, 2010 language source: Tetun - The Timorese Judicial System Monitoring Program (JSMP) Director, Luis de Oliveira Sampaio, has said that the recent statement made by MP Cornelio L-7 Gama from UNDERTIM would not affect the court decision made to sentence Frederico Oank Kiak Florindo and Alberto da Costa Belo to be imprisoned for eight and six years respectively.
Oliveira made the comment because MP Gama had recently made a public statement that they (the ex guerillas) would not let Florindo and Belo to be locked up behind bars.
He added that all the people in the country should be subject to the law and order and respect the legal verdict made by the court.
“I think all the Parliamentarians know and understand well the Constitution as the Constitution has guaranteed that the court decision is the highest one - rather than political decisions.
Oliveira also considered the recent statement made by Gama was a political statement only.
