Speech by Estanislau da Silva, FRETILIN Member of Parliament, and FRETILIN representative to Conference on the Right of the People of Western Sahara.

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

I would like to thank the Organizing Committee of this Conference for inviting us here,

I would like also to thank the Government of Algeria for the hospitality we have been given to attend this International Conference, and

I would like also to commend both the Government and Algerian People for continuing support to the People of Western Sahara

We have recently celebrated in Timor-Leste, on 30 of August 2010, the 11 the anniversary of the referendum, through which the people of Timor-Leste voted overwhelmingly for independence, delivering thereby an end to 24 yeas Indonesia’s occupation of the country. In the meantime, we also celebrated on 20 May the 8th anniversary of restoration of our independence, unilaterally proclaimed by FRETILIN on 28 November 1975.

Therefore, it's both a matter of sadness and a matter of honor to be with you here today.

It's a matter of sadness because 2010 is the 50th anniversary of UN General Assembly Resolution 1514 on the granting of independence to colonial countries and peoples, yet one of the world's last colonies is still being occupied by a state that itself was once colonized.

It's a matter of honor because East Timor and Western Sahara were both abandoned by their former colonial occupiers and occupied after by neighboring states, and the people of East Timor have always supported the right of the people of Western Sahara to determine their own future.

When His Excellency Jose Ramos-Horta accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in 1996 along with Bishop Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo, he mentioned Western Sahara four times in his acceptance speech.

While we East Timorese have regained our independence, Western Sahara is still fighting for its independence. But we follow your situation with attention and sympathy. And, In the meantime, we have in Timor-Leste an Embassy and a resident Ambassador based in Dili.

We read with concern the report by Human Rights Watch two years ago (2008), which documented how "Morocco uses a combination of repressive laws, police violence, and unfair trials to punish Saharawis who advocate peacefully in favor of independence or full self-determination". The same thing had been said about Suharto-era Indonesia when we East Timorese advocated peacefully in favor of self-determination.

Human Rights Watch concluded that "Moroccan authorities consider all opposition to their rule of the disputed territory as illegal attacks on Morocco's "territorial integrity," and use this as a basis to ban or disperse peaceful demonstrations and to deny legal recognition to human rights organizations."

I would like to read to you something from the Final Report of our Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation:

"The diplomacy of the East Timorese resistance was the most important factor in achieving self-determination. The Resistance maintained its commitment in the face of extraordinary challenges including political differences, resource constraints, isolation and overwhelming odds, both inside and outside Timor-Leste. The diplomacy of the resistance was ultimately successful because it focused on internationally agreed principles, eschewed ideology and violence, was open to the contribution of all East Timorese, and made maximum use of the international system, media and civil society networks. As a human rights and moral (rather than ideological) issue, the question of Timor-Leste gained international legitimacy and support at the expense of Indonesia whose case rested on force and had no basis in international law or morality."

You may be assured that we East Timorese support your right to self-determination. We were extremely concerned last year when we received news that Ms Aminatou Haidar, went on hunger strike in the terminal of Lanzarote airport in protest at her illegal expulsion from her home in Western Sahara.

However, drawing on our own struggle for freedom, we believed that the episode indicated how a younger generations of Saharawis have continued to resort to peaceful resistance in order to raise the awareness of the international community. Indeed, in the case of Ms Haidar, we could see how her hunger strike resulted in proposals to include human rights monitoring in the prerogatives of MINURSO (UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara). Although the resolution was vetoed, there is no doubt that continued use of peaceful nonviolent action will have an effect.

We commend Frente Polisario for never engaging in terrorism, even during the years of guerrilla warfare against Moroccan occupation forces between 1975 and 1991. The Frente Polisario has observed a ceasefire ever since, despite Morocco breaking its promise to allow for a UN-sponsored referendum.

Polisario's proposal sensibly commits it to accepting the results of a referendum whatever it is. If a free and fair referendum resulted in an autonomy agreement over independence, then that too would constitute a legitimate act of self-determination. Outstanding UN Security Council resolutions explicitly call for such a referendum. Unfortunately, Morocco has explicitly ruled out "the possibility for the independence option to be submitted" in any referendum.

Meanwhile, Christopher Ross letter addressed to the Group of Friends of Sahara namely EU, France, Spain, United Kindong and Russia, said that in the long run the status quo in the negotiations is unacceptable and it may brings serious risk to the stability of the region. Ross underline the facts of raising extremism and criminal activities which may lead to military and paramilitary adventures in the event of continuing failure of diplomatic negotiation. In addition he stressed that credibility of UN missions could be at risk as well.

Therefore Morocco’s rejection for the independence option to be included in any referendum, would mean that the international community would be endorsing the expansion of a country's territory by military force, thereby violating international law and the UN Charter.

We East Timorese are all too familiar with attempts to do just that, and we therefore support the international legal consensus, namely that articulated in a series of UN Security Council resolutions and a landmark 1975 decision by the International Court of Justice upholding the right of the country's inhabitants to self-determination.

Thank you.

Biar nune’e, biar “bulan madu” hotu ona, ita ema moris tenki hatene  respeita malu nafatin.  Ne’e bolu  naran ÉTIKA (ética). Ita triste bainhira ita hare’e etika mos la iha ona.

Atu fo kulpa ba ema ida deit tenki bolu ema ne’e “beik ten, bosok ten”. Uluk XG rasik maka defende Mario Carrascalao. Agora bolu nia “beik ten no bosok ten”. Ba XG ne’e maka regra. O hakru’uk ba nia, o diak liu iha mundu. La hakru’uk ba nia, o sai diabo. Hau iha ona esperiansia ba ida ne’e iha 2006.

Tempu hau hili atu sai diabu, atu labele sai atan, atu trava ditadura iha ita nia rain. FRETILIN hahu luta ba Independensia atu povu maubere labele sai atan tan ba ema ida. Atu harii no haburas demokrasia no Estado de Direito.

Hametin vigilansia atu labele fo dalan ba krisi iha AMP atu sai hikas fali kauza ida foun ba krisi nasional.

To loron ida maka AMP rahun, FRETILIN nafatin sei la fo dalan ba atu hara’hun instituisaun de Estadu, liu-liu Orgauns de Soberania sira.

Ita hatudu ona katak ita hadomi rai doben ida ne’e, hadomi povu doben ida ne’e;

Ita FRETILIN rejeita violensia no lakohi krisi atu akontese fali iha Timor-Leste.

A Luta Continua!
Viva Povu Maubere.

Interesante teb-tebes tema ida ne’ebé hau hakarak fo hatene ba Camarada sira ou Camarada sira rasik hare ona para ita bele halo reflesaun ba pontu ida ne’e.

Maibe hau hakarak atu hateten oras ne’e dadaun ita kontinua hatudu paz ho estabilidade, atu fila fali ba estabilidade. Hau bele hateten estabilidade ne’e ba saida ninia? Estabilidade ba ita nia rai ka establidade ba governasaun ida ne’e.

Kuandu ami hakarak ou FRETILIN hakarak atu fo garantia ba sira, liu husi proposta oioin, ne’ebé maka mak ita nia bancada liu husi Parlamentu aprejenta ba sira sira nunka rona so ke tamba FRETILIN ninia, so ke FRETILIN ninian sira tenki rejeita total, lakohi atu simu nein proposta ida.

Iha sira nia diskursu bobot sira koalia, sira koalia kona ba estadu de dereitu Dmokratíku. Sira mos koalia katak nesesidade povu ninian mak bot liu e a’as liu. Maibe hateke tun ba iha kraik realidade laiha. Husi fali sorin osan barbarak maka mout tiha deit iha ita nian rain, la lori buat diak ida ba povu no rai ida ne’e.

Soberania nasional signifika katak idak-idak tenki halão ninia kna’ar, ida-idak halão ninia servisu. Maibe hotu-hotu tenki iha ideas komum ida. Maibe ita asisti durante tempo ida ne’e, Primeiru Ministru defaktu Kay Rala xanana Gusmão mete ba iha tribunal ninian. Dala ruma ba to’o iha Parlamentu Nasional hodi halo ninian, hanesan deputadu Inacio Moreira hateten “atu los ka sala foti liman dala ida deit.” Ida ne’e maka jeitu Primeiru Ministru nian. Ida ne’e maka ita dehan garantia soberania nasional? Susar se kuandu ita lão hanesan ne’e liliu iha nasaun ida be soberano ida ne’e.

Por outro lado estadu ida ne’ebé ke hakarak impoin ou ema ne’ebé maka ukun nain sira hakarak impoin sira nia vontade ba ema ki’ik, lão hili ukun nain para halo narnaran deit hodi ba tur iha kadeira povu ninian.

Bainhira primeiru Ministru defaktu halão PEDN iha distritu no subdistritu taka tia tilun. Povu husu mak be mos, husu maka ahi, balun dehan katak mate lakan, mate lakan. Balun dehan mate piska-piska, balun husu estrada no husu buat seluk-seluk maibe nia (PM) laiha liafuan para atu hatán.

Nia la hatan los, maibe dala ruma nia husik sala ida ne’e mai ami rua kamarada Marí nia leten, hodi dehan katak, ne’e governu ida uluk nia sala. Biar sira ukun tiha hona tinan rua ou tinan tolu maibe governu ida uluk maka sala nafatin, maske sira mak halo sala mos sira dehan governu ida uluk maka sala nafatin.

Maibe governu ida uluk nia diak ne’e, sira dehan ne’e sira nia diak fali ka diak ne’e sira nia mesak. Hau hare momos buat sira ne’e. Entaun lori buat hirak ne’e hotu hotu lori rai ida ne’e ba to’o iha ne’ebé, lori ita nia povu ida ne’e to’o iha ne’ebé?

Ita nia soberania nakdoko. Oinsa mak ita bele hamrik hanesan estadu ida de dereitu demokrátiku iha rai ida ne’e, se ita nia autoridade lão hanesan ne’e kamarada sira? Karik sala, hau hare ne’e sala.

Timor Leste goes backward on economic competitiveness and wealth gap



Dili, 13 September 2010

Timor-Leste goes backward on economic competitiveness and wealth gap

Timor-Leste's ranking in the World Economic Forum's 2010-2011 "Global Competitiveness Report" has fallen from 127 to 133 of 139 countries.

The report ( by the Geneva-based Forum follows a warning to the Timor-Leste de facto government headed by Mr. Xanana Gusmao from a senior United Nations representative that a lack of economic growth in the Timor-Leste countryside is widening the gap between rural and urban areas.

FRETILIN MP and former Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture, Estanislau da Silva, said today the Forum's Global Competitiveness Report showed Timor-Leste rated near-bottom in areas such as infrastructure (138 out of 139), technological readiness 139, financial market development 136, health and primary education 132, higher education and training 130 and innovation 136.

"Factors identified as the most challenging for doing business - for between 15 and 20 per cent of respondents - included access to financing, an inefficient government bureaucracy and inadequate supply of infrastructure. For between 10 and 15 per cent of respondents the biggest concern was corruption," Mr da Silva said.

"This downward trend in attracting investment is extremely worrying from the point of view of building a sustainable economy that will create jobs and eradicate poverty," he said.

"Public spending from the very large budgets generated by petroleum revenue over the last three years has been misdirected and has failed to benefit the poor, especially the rural poor outside of Dili, who make up around 85 per cent of the population.

"The biggest beneficiaries of government largesse has been the Dili-based political elite and their families."

Mr da Silva pointed to a letter from the deputy head of the United Nations' mission in Timor-Leste and representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Mr. Finn Reske-Nielsen to Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao which expressed grave concerns regarding Timor-Leste's ability to meet its human development goals.

In the letter dated 25 June 2010 and only recently shown to MPs by parliamentary advisors, Mr. Reske-Nielsen states the UN's view that "..... a disquieting feature of recent development pattern has been the growing disparities between rural and urban areas. This is an undesirable trend considering that the vast majority of the Timorese population live in villages dependent upon subsistence agriculture. Persistent deprivation of the rural areas is already manifesting itself in migration, particularly of youth, to the urban areas.....Budgetary allocation to the agricultural sector, in the past, has perhaps not been commensurate with the needs of the rural population....there are concerns that the inequalities might have worsened over the past few years."

Mr. Resle-Nielsen also questions Mr Gusmao's assumptions in his so-called Strategic Development Plan on economic growth and therefore poverty eradication, saying, "It may be pertinent to mention that these countries (countries in south-east Asia that have been able to grow rapidly while simultaneously reducing poverty) did not rely solely on 'trickle down' but put policies and programs in place to make growth inclusive."

Mr. Reske-Nielson also warns the government that, "The realization of double digit growth rates visualized under SDP is inextricably linked to the incremental capital-output ratio which in turn is an indicator of how well we use our capital resources. In the context of Timor-Leste where the cost of doing business is very high due to inadequate infrastructure and lack of enabling environment, the assumed ratio of 5 may not materialize."

(Link to letter:

Mr da Silva said: "It is clear that nobody outside the de facto government actually believes that the government's policies and irresponsible spending spree is actually resulting in sustainable economic growth and alleviation of poverty.

"Mr Gusmao's own former Deputy Prime Minister Mario Carrascalao has spelled out a litany of policy and governance failures, with a dire warning that as a result, 'difficult days ahead must be anticipated.' "

Deputy Prime Minister a 'scapegoat' for government corruption says Alkatiri



DILI, 8 September 2010
Deputy Prime Minister a 'scapegoat' for government corruption says Alkatiri
De facto Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao has launched an offensive against his own deputy Mario Carrascalao aimed at stopping Mr Carrascalao from exposing ministerial corruption, FRETILIN Secretary General and former Prime Minister, Dr Mari Alkatiri, said today.

Dr Alkatiri said Mr Gusmao is seeking to discredit Deputy Prime Minister Carrascalao's anti corruption stand and make him a scapegoat for government financial mismanagement.

Mr Gusmao appointed Mr Carrascalao as Deputy Prime Minister for State Administration on 22 January 2009 with special responsibility for combating corruption. Procurement powers were transferred from Procurement Depatment in the Ministrey os Finance to Mr Carrascalao's office.
But on August 25 2010 Mr Gusmao's Council of Ministers rebuked Mr Carrascalao, stripped him of his powers over all government procurement and handed the powers to line ministries.

"This is the fourth time the Gusmao administration has changed the legal mechanism for undertaking government procurement - another example of its incompetence and maladministration," Dr Alkatiri said.

On September 2 the AMP de facto government's spokesperson Mr. Agio Pereira issued a statement accusing Mr Carrascalao of seeking to "defame and intimidate" government members with "unfounded allegations of corruption
" (Link:

On the same day Mr Gusmao described Mr Carrascalao as "a stupid person" who had "made a lot of money from the spilling of (Timorese) blood" during the Indonesian occupation of East Timor (Link:

Dr Alkatiri said as the head of the AMP de facto government Mr Gusmao must take responsibility for the repeated policy and administrative failures and widespread corruption in his administration instead of looking to blame others.

"However, Mr. Carrascalao is not blameless. He was very naïve to accept such a task in such circumstances. There has been no political will shown by the de facto government to fight corruption. He clearly did not appreciate that strengthening the state’s procurement agency is an essential element to effectively fight corruption. From the outset his endeavors were were weakened by resistance from colleagues determined to stop his attempts to reform procurement, and his investigations into corruption, misconduct and maladministration.

"We do not doubt Mr Carrascalao's good intentions but we warned him publicly that Mr Gusmao was setting a trap for him and that he would be made the scapegoat one day. Most all he should have realized that accepting the task of executing USD$180 million in capital development expenditure with such demonstrable lack of procurement and financial management capacity, as well as lack of commitment to transparency in public finance management could only have placed him in the position he is now in," Dr Alkatiri said.

"Mr Carrascalao's treatment shows that incompetent and crooked ministers will be allowed to stay at their posts long after Mr Gumsao should have got rid of them.

"This incident shows the rot has clearly set in, and there is a crisis of trust between ministers and leaders of the various factions of the de facto government.

"Mr Gusmao cannot escape responsibility because it was he who created this disparate and divided coalition of people who do not have a common vision, who have no record of civic duty, who see high office as an opportunity for personal financial gain, and including people who were not nationalists but stood against Timorese nationalism."

"Vice-Primeiro-Ministro um bode expiatório para a corrupção dentro do governo AMP", diz Alkatiri

Comunicado de Imprensa 

Díli, 7 de setembro de 2010

"Vice-Primeiro-Ministro um bode expiatório para a corrupção dentro do governo AMP", diz Alkatiri
O primeiro-ministro de facto, Xanana Gusmão, lançou uma ofensiva contra o seu próprio vice Mário Carrascalão com o objetivo de deter o Sr. Carrascalão de expor a corrupção ministerial, disse hoje o secretário-geral da FRETILIN e ex-primeiro-ministro, Dr. Mari Alkatiri.
Mari Alkatiri disse que, o Sr. Gusmão pretende desacreditar a tomada de posição contra a corrupção do vice-primeiro-ministro Carrascalão, e fazer dele um bode expiatório para a má gestão das finanças públicas.
Gusmão nomeou Carrascalão como vice-primeiro-ministro da Administração do Estado em 22 de Janeiro de 2009, com especial responsabilidade para o combate à corrupção. Os poderes do Aprovisionamento foram transferidos do departamento do Aprovisionamento no ministério das Finanças para o gabinete do Sr. Carrascalão.
Mas em 25 de agosto de 2010, o Conselho de Ministros do Sr. Gusmão, repreendeu o Sr. Carrascalão, e retirou-lhe os seus poderes de todas as compras governamentais e entregou o poder para os ministérios de linha.
"Esta é a quarta vez que a administração de Gusmão mudou o mecanismo legal para a realização de contratos públicos - outro exemplo da sua incompetência e má administração", disse Mari Alkatiri.
Em 02 de Setembro, o porta-voz do Governo de facto da AMP, o Sr. Ágio Pereira, emitiu um comunicado acusando o Sr. Carrascalão de procurar "difamar e intimidar" os membros do governo com "alegações infundadas de corrupção". (Link a DECLARAÇÃO SOBRE O GABINETE DO VICE PRIMEIRO-MINISTRO MÁRIO CARRASCALÃO:

No mesmo dia, o Sr. Gusmão descreveu o Sr. Carrascalão como "uma pessoa estúpida" que "fez um muito dinheiro com o derramamento de sangue dos timorenses " durante a ocupação indonésia de Timor Leste. (Link ao artigo do Tempo Semanal: " Xanana Chama Mário Carrascalão estúpido, uma crise de confiança surge no Governo AMP":
O Dr. Alkatiri disse que o chefe do governo de facto da AMP, Sr. Gusmão, deve assumir a responsabilidade pelas políticas repetidas e falhas administrativas e da corrupção generalizada no seu governo, em vez de culpar os outros.
"No entanto, o Sr. Carrascalão não é inocente. Ele foi muito ingénuo ao aceitar tal função em tais circunstâncias. Não tem havido vontade política demonstrada pelo Governo de facto de combate à corrupção. Ele claramente não compreendia que o reforço das instituições do Aprovisionamento do Estado é um elemento essencial para combater a corrupção. Desde o início, que os seus esforços foram enfraquecidos pela resistência dos colegas que estavam determinados a parar as suas tentativas de reforma do Aprovisionamento, e das suas investigações sobre a corrupção, a má e a falta de administração.
"Nós não duvidamos das boas intenções do Sr. Carrascalão, mas nós avisamos publicamente que o Sr. Gusmão estava a preparar uma armadilha para ele e que ele iria ser o bode expiatório um dia. Acima de tudo, ele deveria ter percebido que aceitar a tarefa de executar US$ 180 milhões em despesasorçamentais de capital e desenvolvimento com a comprovada falta de capacidade em gestão financeira, bem como a falta de compromisso para com a transparência na gestão das finanças públicas, só poderiam tê-lo colocado na posição em que ele se encontra agora," disse Mari Alkatiri.
"O tratamento dado ao senhor Carrascalão revela que os ministros incompetentes e desonestos irão ser autorizados a permanecer nos seus cargos, e há muito tempo que o Sr. Gusmão deveria ter-se livrado deles.”
"Este incidente mostra claramente que a podridão está implementada, e que há uma crise de confiança entre os ministros e líderes de várias fações do Governo de facto".
"O Sr. Gusmão não pode escapar da responsabilidade, porque foi ele quem criou esta coligação disparatada e dividida de pessoas que não têm uma visão comum, que não têm um registo de dever cívico, que veem um alto cargo como uma oportunidade para ganhos financeiros pessoais, incluindo pessoas que nunca foram nacionalistas, e que eram contra o nacionalismo timorense," declarou Mari Alkatiri.
