Fretilin’s MPs strongly condemned the actions of International Stabilization Forces (ISF) towards Fretilin’s supporters in the Lete-Foho sub-district of Ermera.
Mr. Antoninho Bianco, Fretilin MP, confirmed that the ISF – together with language assistance – conducted a door-to-door operation looking for Fretilin supporters.
“The ISF is acting the same way the Indonesian military did during the resistance. What is the ISF doing in Timor-Leste – guaranteeing security or pressuring Fretilin?” said Mr. Bianco.
The Secretary-General of Fretilin stated that the ISF is not impartial; it pressures Fretilin supporters while supporting other parties. (TP, DN and STL)
