PNTL Legal Procedure Violations

Fundasaun Mahein’s monitoring of the National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL) has indicated the PNTL is responsible for numerous cases of injury or death to Timorese citizens. Cases where Timorese citizens fall victim to PNTL actions are not uncommon and have often been the case for public debate. In particular, the professionalism of the PNTL has come under scrutiny as their actions are not always in line with legal procedure as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). The unlawful acts perpetrated by the PNTL have a devastating effect not only on the public’s perception of the PNTL but also on all the security sector institutions operating in Timor-Leste.

There have been two high-profile and confirmed cases of unlawful acts committed by PNTL officers. On 3rd January 2014, a PNTL officer from the Atabae police station killed a young man about 200 meters from the crime scene of a murder the young man had committed and was trying to escape from. On 31st December 2013, a PNTL officer stationed in Maliana threatened a crowd of people with his pistol because they were stepping over a football field line which spectators are forbidden to pass.

The cases mentioned above indicate that many PNTL officers are not fulfilling their duties in line with SOP regulations.

If cases of police misconduct are linked, they point to a larger pattern of PNTL officers violating SOP and PLAN rules. Instead of immediately responding with force, which in one case led to the fatal shooting of a suspect, officers should first arrest and detain suspects involved with a crime so that further investigation may be conducted and the proper legal channels may be followed. In the case of the 3 January 2014 fatal shooting incident, the officer who shot the suspect had no justification for doing so as the suspect had no weapon on him at the time.

FM suggests that when police deal with criminals, they must obey the SOP regulations, which are based on the PLAN spectrum: Proportional, Legal, Accountable, Necessary.

There are some important points that must be considered by PNTL officers. When the PNTL officers respond to problems they should not use force immediately, but should instead respond in a professional manner to resolve the conflict or situation with as little force necessary, strictly adhering to legal guidelines in the process. Furthermore, police should act proportionally to the situation they are in, meaning that they should be authorized to use force only if they are in a situation in which their life is in immediate danger. Finally, all PNTL actions must be based on legality and accountability, which means that officers cannot use force without justification, but are authorized to use deadly force only in certain situations (such as to save the life of an innocent person).

Furthermore, the unauthorized detainment of 8 people by a PNTL officer from the Lacluta police station in Viqueque district, on 16 December 2013, is another example of protocol violation by the PNTL. This incident resulted from the fact that the detention process used by PNTL officers is sometimes not based on facts but rather on personal biases.

FM’s monitoring, particularly towards the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 has unveiled that PNTL actions in the field often are not based on SOP and PLAN protocol.

FM recommends that the PNTL align their field actions with SOP and PLAN guidelines so that the dream of a professional and trusted police force can become a reality in Timor-Leste.
