Viqueque incident is not political: Horta
Diario Nacional, June 7, 2007 Translated from Tetun
The President Jose Ramos Horta said the recent shooting death of a
National Congress for Timorese Reconstruction (CNRT) team-member, Afonso
Kudalai, was not political.
Horta said the incident was caused by a personal conflict between
suspect and victim.
The President made the comment yesterday in press conference at Nicolau
Lobato airport, after returning from a trip to Indonesia.
Horta said the suspect had held a grudge against Kudalai since 1997.
He added that he did not think the leaders of Fretilin or other
political parties were involved in the incident. He said the suspect
acted on his own and not on anyone's orders.
