The Zumalai Incident was a Big Test for the PNTL
Recently London (England) was the victim of widespread public disorder, which was unexpected and which the police struggled to control it. In Timor-Leste, we also have similar violence which appears continually, seemingly without end. Timor-Leste’s history is full of violence, almost every year houses are burnt and people are killed. But why have the PNTL not made plans and preparation for this violence?
The incident in which a PNTL officer was killed and houses burned in Zumalai-Suai was a big test of the capacity of the PNTL. When killings and house burnings occur, did the Cova Lima PNTL District Commander have the capacity to mobilize the district PNTL? Perhaps if the PNTL in Suai did not have enough capacity for this situation, did the Commander of Suai district have the capacity to ask for support from the PNTL National Command or not? Does the training of the PNTL include making large plans in order to deal with serious public disturbances?
FM is concerned because the PNTL was not able to make a response which was able to stop the violence in Suai. Incidents like this continually occur, but why did the PNTL not make preparations? FM asks that the internal security policies of Timor-Leste be revised in order that PNTL are directed to deal with the incidents that more regularly threaten Timor. FM notes that the PNTL recently received training in counter-terrorism, bomb-disposal and even marine training, training which killed a PNTL officer – this sort of training is not reflective of security priorities in this country.
In order to build security which has legitimately, security policy must have a basis in the real threats faced by Timor-Leste. In order to respond to a situation, PNTL training must be related to threats like the violence in Zumalai-Suai. FM recommends to the government to review again the PNTL training mechanisms, such as military style training using assault rifles – incidents such as Zumilai-Suai asks that the PNTL have community police training which is designed to prevent conflict. FM recommends that a community police service which is effective and resolves the problem. PNTL must know the community and its problems, it must anticipate when large scale violence might occur and then create plans to ensure that such violence is prevented or controlled. This requires good planning, good logistics and,above all, good leadership.
Increasing the PNTL’s capacity, must be based on the domestic threats, because such capacity will make a quick response to some incidents in this country. Public disturbances such as in Zumalai-Suai are a big test of the capacity of the PNTL, a test which, in this case, the PNTL failed.
Because incidents like Zumalai-Suai will happen even more during the Presidential and Parliamentary elections, FM must ask, is the PNTL ready for 2012 or not?
