Angelita Pires threatens to take Horta and journalists to court

Timor Post, June 21, 2010 language source: Tetun Angelita Pires, accused but acquitted of having been involved in the plot to attack President Jose Ramos Horta’s residence in February 11, 2008, said she would take President Horta and two Portuguese journalists to the court because they had defamed her with falsehoods. 

In a written letter to the court, Ms Pires wanted to sue Horta and the Portuguese journalists, because during the trial she was not found guilty regarding the allegations against her. 

The court has recently made verdict in which Pires was not found guilty, due to a lack of evidence.
