Yep, guess Xanana is friendly with some strange, brutal people,
embrassing Wirranto and callling him a friend was just the beginning.
In an email from a reader:
“At 19:55 24 September 2009 Prime Minister of Timor-Leste entered the
Hotel Timor. Upon entering the lobby he met Rosario “Hercules” Marcal –
notorious Jakarta gangland figure. After shaking hands and embracing
they sat down for a chat as if among old friends on the sofa next to the
restaurant on the western side of the lobby area.”
You can read alot about Hercules gang life here and here and here.
