|East Timor||BELO DENOUNCES MILITIA INFILTRATION|
Dili's Apostolic Administrator, Bishop Carlos Belo, has told a Portuguese newspaper that pro-Indonesian militias are infiltrating East Timor and harassing the local population. |
He called on the National Resistance Council of East Timor (CNRT) to do everything possible to block the militias from entering the territory.
The Bishop suggested a collaboration between former East Timorese guerrillas and UN peacekeepers to stop the militias from crossing the border from West Timor.
He said: "We must also ask these people, who hide in groups, what they want. If they want to integrate peacefully they are welcome. But we cannot have a repetition of the actions committed last September".
