Fretilin’s youth: pressuring an investigation into the author of the 2006 crisis

Fretilin’s youth are pressuring the Court of Appeal to investigate immediately the author of 2006 crisis that led to the deaths of many people and the destruction of hundreds of houses.

The Spokesperson of the youth, Paulino Soares, declared that the speech of President Xanana Gusmão on TVTL on 23 of March 2006 caused conflicts and violence in Dili. Many people, including military men, were victims of that speech.

“For this reason we need the Court of Appeal to investigate the video where Alfredo accuses Xanana of being the author of the 2006 crisis. We also ask the President to take action on this constitutionally.

Mari Alkatiri resigned because of a video played in Australia. So we say that Alfredo’s video could be the evidence and we ask PM Xanana Gusmão to resign and dissolve the government,” declared Paulo on Wednesday (16/1) in a press conference in Quintal Boot, Dili. (DN, TVTL and RTL)
