DARWIN woman Angelita Pires has won her first battle in her bid to be cleared of allegations she orchestrated an assassination attempt against East Timor President Jose Ramos Horta.

The Australian Government yesterday agreed to fund Ms Pires’ legal aid for the next five months.

Ms Pires wants to keep her Brazilian lawyer Zeni Alves Arndt, but the Australian Government will have to make an official request to Brazil.
