We recommend the use of the customised Google search engine on the home page to locate posts on particular subjects.
New reports are either written directly by the author or based upon national and international media news reports, civil society law and justice organisations statements and reports, the United Nations press releases and the Government of East Timor press releases. These legal news reports are are edited for factual accuracy, source of original and authority, grammatical rule compliance, translation accuracy and for legal liability purposes.
