Caught on Camera – Human Rights Abuses By F-FDTL and PNTL

An elderly Timorese man sits cowering and scared on a plastic chair. Surrounding him, a ring of security forces dressed in military and police uniforms taunt and mock as a soldier violently hacks away at the man’s long white hair with scissors. Encouraged by the crowd, another soldier feigns to punch the man’s head – they all laugh as the man instinctively winces. The man is then made to stand as soldiers punch at his body. When the man’s limp arms block the blows to his ribcage he is ordered to raise them above his head, as he does so his exposed body is struck immediately by fresh blows.

The paragraph above may be reminiscent of testimony recorded by the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation(CAVR) in describing acts committed by TNI forces during the occupation, but actually it describes scene from a video believed to be filmed only weeks ago.

More shocking, the security forces that appear in the video are Timorese.

Firstly a caveat, Fundasaun Mahein (FM) has viewed the video on social media and has not verified its authenticity – nor have we managed to interview the author who posted it to Facebook.

However, such is content we believe that there is prima facie cause to call for immediate action. It is barely worthwhile mentioning the all the laws and regulations that the soldiers breach in the video (The Constitution of Timor-Leste, Penal Code of Timor-Leste, F-FDTL Code of Conduct and Universal Declaration of Human Rights for a start…) as the treatment of the man is so plainly wrong to any decent citizen.

FM believes that the video was filmed within the Laga Sub-District (Baucau District) during the F-FDTL and PNTL Joint Command Operation (KOK) in response to the actions of Mauk Moruk and supporters of his banned Konselu Revolusaun Maubere (KRM) group. The Operation has been undeniably tense and stressful for members of security forces –incidents committed by the KRM have included the kidnapping of PNTL officers, destruction of a police vehicle and the theft of firearms. However, the operation itself and behaviour of the PNTL and F-FDTL has also been criticised with reports that security forces have broadened divisions within the local community and initiated greater suspicion and antagonism towards the military and police.

The chance of human-rights abuses is particularly high as operations such as the one currently underway in Laga drag-on and security sector personnel become increasingly tired, frustrated and scared. It is precisely at this time that the need for strong organizational culture, leadership and discipline becomes most obvious and it is the lack of any of these qualities that is so clearly illustrated in the video.

If verified, the video also provokes many other questions and observations in regards to the F-FDTL and PNTL:

– How can so many members of the F-FDTL and PNTL be directly involved or witness to such a flagrant abuse of human-rights without putting a stop to it? The lack of intervention seems to suggest that rather than an isolated incident by a few ‘bad apples’, the behavior on display is ignored or worse, actually endorsed by Security Force command.

– Why are the perpetrators recording the incident– is it simply gross stupidity or sadistic bragging? How is it that members of the security forces can feel so above the law that they are comfortable recording and posting their crimes on social media?

– Why, despite frequently publicizing the Human Rights training undertaken by members of FFDTL and PNTL, do incidents like this continue to occur? Is the training actually effective or is it simply a public relations exercise?

– Why have we not heard a statement from the F-FDTL or PNTL command regarding the video? It has currently been viewed over 12,000 times and it is hard to believe that leaders in these organizations are not aware of its existence. The failure to proactively respond to an apparent human-rights abuse either suggests incompetence, indifference or complicity within the leadership.

Whilst in recent years real progress has been made to develop trust, understanding and cooperation between the community and security forces, incidents such as this have the potential to significantly undo much of this good work. It may now be too late to repair all the damage done to the victim and community involved, but the F-FDTL and PNTL Command can retain a measure of support from the public if it acts decisively and transparently in investigating this incident. Alternatively, failure to act unequivocally in this matter will be interpreted as a secondary, and perhaps more damning failure of the security sector to uphold human-rights.

Fundasaun Mahein therefore urgently calls for:

1. F-FDTL and PNTL command to publically respond to this video, including providing a timeline for an investigation and any provisional disciplinary and procedural measures taken to ensure the public can have confidence in all current security sector personnel and operations.

2. The Ombudsman for Human Rights and Justice (PDHJ) to launch an immediate inquiry into this incident including, if substantiated, recommendations for criminal charges, victim compensation, and structural and procedural changes within the security sector organs to ensure human rights are upheld.

3. The Ombudsman for Human Rights and Justice (PDHJ) to launch an inquiry into the policies and actions of the Joint Command Operation by F-FDTL and PNTL undertaken in Laga for other possible human-rights abuses.
