East Timor Legal News Source: Independente 19/12/2011 - Timorese Police Commander Commissioner of Police Longuinhos Monteiro said that the police have inaugurated 11 boats to be used to pontrol Timor's water in Batugade.

He  said that the inauguration was positive as the officials of PNTL will cooperate with the Customs Department and the Timorese Defence Force (F-FDTL) to control the sea in order to avoid illegal fishing.

"We can say that our Government loses millions of dollars each year, because people continue to steal our wealth in the sea," Monteiro said.
