Timorese National Police (PNTL) Commander, Commissioner Longuinhos Monteiro has called on all the Timorese people not to use the country’s security forces such as PNTL and defense force as their political instrument.

The commander made the comments during a joint press conference which was held on Tuesday (27/3) at PNTL HQ in Kaikoli, Dili.

Monteiro said such a situation did not show good image of the state and its people who were currently continuing to live in the process of democracy building. He said he would continue watching all his police officers not to get involved in any political practices.
