“Right now we are trying to establish possible suspects, which is not easy, so a lot of time is needed,” said Calisto Gonzaga, Director of Criminal Investigations Service, from his office in Caicoli, Dili.

According to Director Gonzaga things were heating up out there, so police went in to calm people down, but this resulted in the death of the youth.

“The situation was out of control and resulted in the death of one young man from Ossu, District of Viqueque. The victim was a third semester student at Dili University, said the Director.

SIC has approached the Public Prosecutor’s Office for cooperation in the investigation procedures.

Member of Parliament (NP) Maria Maia Reis asked police to speed the process so the culprit can be found.

“We must find the culprits and bring them to justice, this is about a person’s life,” MP Reis added.
