He added that these groups have blackmailed the people, issued illegal identity cards, and repeated intimidation against the people to become members of these groups. 

He said that excessive use of power was exercised in order to restore peace and stability in the country, particularly in the districts of Bobonaro and Kovalima.

He also mentioned that there is also widespread rumor amongst these groups that that the hands of the PNTL are not tightly tied up with the existing agreement with the UN.

He said that there is such provision but if the people are crying for help, then PNTL are ready to restore peace, stability and tranquility in the country.
