Australia to send more police to Timor-Leste
font size    

Australia will increase the number of its police in violence-torn Timor-Leste to 200 "as soon as possible", said Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer on Wednesday.

He said that Australia has 1,300 troops and 106 Australian Federal Police in Timor-Leste.

The foreign minister also said Australia wants Timor-Leste's parliament to change its laws and allow foreign police to arrest arsonists and looters.

He said foreign police in Timor-Leste are now restrained in their efforts to stem the violence by that country's laws.

"We're in discussions today with the East Timorese (Timor-Leste) about how they can change the law ... they are going to have to change it through their parliament," he added.
