F-FDTL needs to strengthen discipline: Mahein

Diario Nacional, October 29, 2010 language source: Tetun - The Director of the Mahein Foundation, Nelson Belo, said the Timorese Defence Force (F-FDTL) needed to strengthen discipline and professionalism for defending people’s interest.

Belo stressed that being the defence of the country, F-FDTL had to be functioning based on the constitution and should not be affiliated to any political parties.

Belo affirmed that in the period of the resistance, FALINTIL [Timorese liberation army] which has been transformed into the F-FDTL has contributed to the country’s independence and should keep up with its impartiality.

He added that the F-FDTL is originally from the Fretilin which was called FALINTIL, yet time has changed and it is now the national defense force; therefore it should be independent now.
