Televizaun Timor-Leste, January 21, 2011 language source: Tetun - The Immigration Police Department has sent back eight Indonesian woman to their home country after they violated their tourist visas and engagied in immoral activity like prostitution in Timor-Leste.

The eight women were detained during the joint operation held by the Immigration Police, United Nations Police, National Investigation Police and UN-GNR of Portugal in Tuesday 13 this month.

Immigration Police Vice Inspector Chief Luis Barreto said that they had brought the eight women to the border at Batugade in order to hand them over to the Indonesian Immigration department.

"We detained them when they are conducting activity in the Nada bar and there is an indication that they are engaging in prostitution. We are focussed on the immigration law so that when a foreigner is found using a tourist visa but is conducting any activities or working then he/she should be detained as they violate the law," Barreto said.
