National Police resume responsibility over the Police Intelligence service

Dili, 18 December 2009 - Today Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Security Sector Support and Rule of Law, Mr Takahisa Kawakami and Secretary of State for Security, Dr Francisco da Costa Guterres, presided over a ceremony in Dili marking the resumption of primary responsibility for the conduct of the Police Intelligence Service of the Polícia Nacional de Timor-Leste (PNTL).

The ceremony took place at the PNTL headquarters in Dili in the morning, with Deputy UNPOL Commissioner Idris Abraham and PNTL General Commander Longuinhos Monteiro also present.
Following the resumption of primary responsibility by PNTL earlier in the week of the Maritime Unit, the Police Intelligence Service is the seventh police entity for which PNTL has resumed responsibility. PNTL has resumed responsibility in four districts – Lautem (May), Oecusse (June), Manatuto (July) and Viqueque (December) – and for the Police Training Centre (September).

The Government of Timor-Leste and UNMIT are implementing the resumption process in a gradual manner – district by district, unit by unit. Assessments of further districts and units are conducted by joint teams comprising representatives of the Government and UNMIT, including PNTL and the United Nations Police (UNPol), using mutually agreed criteria.
