Monsignor Nascimento: Are imported bullets to shoot the doves or cocks of Timor-Leste??

Monsignor Basilio do Nascimento
East Timor Legal News Source: Timor Post 13 September 2011 language source: Tetun - Bishop for Baucau Diocese Monsignor Basilio do Nascimento said the two containers of bullets which are believed to have been imported by the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) and the International Stabilisation Force (ISF) is a challenge for the Timorese Defence Force (F-FDTL), the Timorese National Police (PNTL) and the UN forces.

"I think this is a big challenge for all the forces. It is a test for our police, defence force and UN's force. I hope there will be an explanation so that we can stay calm otherwise people will not feel secure in the general election in 2012. This is because past experiences of the Timorese people are bad," Monsignor Nascimento said.

He added, "The Government should know the UN's plan if they want to import bullets. People of this country are staying peaceful; therefore the question is does the UN import the bullets to shoot doves? Or other birds? And or to shoot the cocks of Timor."

UN Should leave already. They have been in East Timor for too long, and they have only achived very few projects that truly are part of the development program in East TImor. They're just turning East Timor as another "project" for them...i think our leaders are capable enough to take over and they should believe more in their capacities in leading and governing.
