Xanana’s conciliatory speech

Tonight the President of Timor gave a follow up speech concerning the sacking of more than 500 soldiers of the F-FDTL. Credit to him, he actually apologised for the speech he made last Thursday night (see Xanana’s speech), as his words were all it took for those intent on making trouble in the name of east versus west, to do so.

Due to a number of violent incidences in the capital, including in the suburb next door to us, people are scared to leave their homes and as a result small shop owners, “mikrolete” and taxi drivers are all suffering financially.

Perhaps now Xanana’s conciliatory speech will quell the tensions.
