He stressed that, the people who would try to cause conflict should receive its consequences: die or be hospitalized.

"In order to guarantee the election to run well then I say that whoever engages in crime will receive its consequences: to go to prison, be hospitalised or shot dead and their place is in the cemetery," General Lere said.

General Lere made the statements yesterday at the HQ of the Timorese Defense Force (F-FDTL) in Fatuhada, regarding the widespread rumours that there would be a conflict if one of the two presidential candidates Taur Matan Ruak and Francisco Lu-Olo Guterres do not win the election.
