Fretilin calls on court to jail Minister Lobato

Source: Independente, March 6, 2012 language source: Tetun - MP Inacio Moreira from Fretilin has called on the competent institutions to jail Justice Minister Lucia Lobato.

MP Moreira made the statement regarding the recent letter from the Dili District court asking for the Committee I of the Parliament to discuss it in the plenary.

“We are wasting time to discuss about political immunity removal. If she would be jailed more than two years then I think it is better to jail her now and that is better,” MP he said.

MP Fernanda Borges from the National Unity Party (PUN) said no minister had been jailed so far because the proposal of immunity removal had never passed in the vote.
