Police find a grenade in Hotel Timor

Hotel Timor in Dili
Timor Post, March 28, 2011 language source: Tetun - The Timorese Police Commander Commissioner Longuinhos Monteiro has confirmed that the Timorese National Police (PNTL) detected a grenade and a laptop in Hotel Timor, Dili.

Monteiro predicted that the objective of putting the grenade in the Hotel Timor was probably to ruin the hotel by unknown people as some international guests were staying at the Hotel to participate in a ceremony handing over security responsibility from the United Nations Police to PNTL.

He adding that he decided not to publicise this case otherwise people would worry about the situation in the country.

"I do not want to pubicise this issue. It is true that we found a package when the Indonesian delegation representative Lieutenant General Bonis Bere came to the Hotel Timor," Monteiro said.

Wrong info. It wasn't found by the police, at all. It was found by one of Maubere Security guard on his shift, while checking aroung the Hotel Timor vicinity.
