Illegal Member of the PNTL Working Inside the PNTL Institution

Fundasaun Mahein, 17 September 2015

Press Release

This weekend the national media published surprising news to the national public. More than 100 Members of the National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL) from the Task Force, as former foreign citizens, attended the citizenship exam for Timor-Leste. According to the executive director of the National Directorate for Inspection and Notaries (DNRN), those foreigners (participants) are public civil servants and police that were recruited during the period of UNTAET.

However, based on citizenship status as detailed in article 11, line 2, that foreign persons must renounce their former nationality (and have attained administrative proof) to be legally considered citizens of Timor-Leste, the aforementioned members of the PNTL are not legally registered as citizens of Timor-Leste and are still legally considered foreigners. The question is, how could these persons participate in the recruitments by the PNTL?

According to the norms of the process a citizen’s participation in the recruitment for public civil servant (police-military) members, the citizen should have basic criteria such as identity card, the (RDTL) baptism certificate, and a declaration letter from the police institution over their involvement in any crime in order to prove that the person is eligible to participate in the recruitment of police and military institutions in Timor-Leste.

Aligned with the situation that has arisen within the PNTL recently, Fundasaun Mahein (FM) stressed that it a large failure occurred in the recruitment process under the United Nation (UN) mission, in that the recruitment process of the PNTL, led by UNPOL under the UNTAET period, entailed applying International criteria focusing on a candidate’s height and experience, but did not apply a rigorous criteria. This lack of criteria was criticized by civil society actors, including FM, at the time.

In this recent case, in FM’s recommendation, the department of human resources of the PNTL needs to verify the documentation of its active police members, especially those members recruited under the UNTAET period, as the recruitment mechanisms of that time were lax, allowing for easy falsification of documents.

In addition, there is a lack of control from the Migration Department, which does not have concrete data over foreign entry and exit in Timor-Leste, making it easy for foreigners to go in and out (tama-sai) as well as falsify their documents. Even worse is that members of the PNTL protect each other from investigation, and also ultimately protect those working illegally inside the PNTL.

In FM’s view, this is a threat and dangerous issue for the PNTL, as this is a reflection on how the PNTL ensures professionalism in its ranks. If members working inside the (PNTL) institution are not real citizens of this nation, what can be said of the professionalism of the PNTL?

Therefore, Fundasaun Mahein recommends that:

1. The institution of the PNTL have a controlling system, in which there is rigorous document verification for new cadets in the future, and verification of the original documents in order to minimize duplication and falsification.

2. The institution of the PNTL ensures transparency and accountability in the recruitment process, and that the PNTL command needs to review its recruitment mechanism in order to establish a strong and rigorous system in the selection process for documents for verification of cadets.
