Video: Rai Los (Ex-Militia Leader-2006), and Former ABRI/TNI Demonstrate in Support of Horta: To Kill Justice.


This is video footage of the Pro President Horta Demonstration of less that 100 people at Nicolau Aiport two days ago.  The demonstration was to support Horta in his efforts to kill Justice and free Maternus Bere.  Full 6 October 2009 story here.

The gentlemen that is reading the declaration in support of Horta as seen in the below video footage is Manuel "Mau Hura" Goncalves. Goncalves was a major supporter of Major Alfreod Reinado, whose attack on Horta's house in February 2008 resulted in Alfredo Reinado's death and Horta shooting and suffering major wounds.  Those others present at the scene are now standing trial in Dili District Court.

Supporters greet President Horta, Mau Hura, Commander Dudu, and Rai Los, (others are Ex-Petitioners,
MUNJ, PDN and other characters.)
As shown in the news story done by David O'Shea and John Martinkus in regard to Theory of Conspiracy in August 2006, "Mau Hura" was shown as an active and armed participant in the attack on FALINTIL-FDTL Headquarters in Tasi Tolu on 24 May 2006. According to the Independent Comission of Inquiry a number of people were killed and wounded on both sides, and ex-FDTL Sargeant "Commander Rai Los"'s militia lead the attack.

Just as in the case of 1975-99, there is also no justice for 2006.  Those that are alleged to have committed crimes continue to walk free in Timor-Leste, and even meet the President of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste upon his arrival in a show of support for the President's policies on justice.

There Was Once a Plan to Execute Xanana Gusmao

By Ahkmad Kusaeni

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - A decision made during an emergency situation
could make a history. If Xanana Gusmao who was arrested in 1992 were
executed, East Timor might never secede from Indonesia and the leader
of the security disturbance group, Fretilin, would not become an East
Timorese president.

A book -- I have written along with my colleague Benny S Butarbutar
and was launched only early this week -- revealed what has been a
mystery on the arrest of Xanana Gusmao in the morning of November 20,
1992, at a location in Dili, the capital of East Timor.

It turned out that the then chief of the Indonesian Armed Forces
(ABRI)`s operational command in East Timor (when it was still
Indonesia`s province) Brig.Gen. Theo Syafei (now retired) once
proposed that Xanana be `finished`.
"Pak Try, I have arrested Xanana. Should I finish him, sir?" Theo said.

It was never disclosed before that when Xanana was only arrested, the
chief of the operational command in East Timor immediately reported
it to the then Indonesian Armed Forces (ABRI) chief Gen. Try Sutrisno
(now retired) and asked for directives for further measures.

That time, the operational command chief once asked Try Sutrisno if
Xanana Gusmao could be finished`. But Try Sutrisno said Xanana should
not be killed but remain alive for trial.

The historical fact is among others revealed in the book entitled
"TIDAR" standing for Bhakti Tiada Akhir (endless services), which is
a note reflecting 40 years of services of the 1965 graduates of the
National Military Academy whose leading figures included Theo Syafei
who played a significant role in the arrest of Xanana who is now the
president of the neighbouring country, a former Portuguese colony.

When the writer of the book asked Theo Syafei in July, 2005, about
the plan to execute Xanana, Theo who is a figure of the Indonesian
Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) confirmed it.

"It is likely the time for me to reveal the truth about Xanana," said
Theo who is a former Udayana military command whose jurisdiction
included Bali province.

Theo then talked much about Xanana`s arrest. The story began with the
fall of Bank Summa including its branch in East Timor in 1992. There
was a policy then that Bank Summa`s branch in East Timor was only
able to return a maximum of Rp10 million to each customer.

Meanwhile, a university student whose deposit was more than Rp11
million demanded that the bank return Rp11 million to him, but the
head of Bank Suma`s branch office said the bank was only able to give
Rp10 million back to the student.

"I am a student. I want to return to Bali," the student said.

The chief of the operational command that time happened to visit Bank
Suma. The student then asked for recommendation. Theo asked the
student why he asked for the money totalling Rp11 million, and the
student answered that he wanted to go to Bali.

"I am a student. I want to return to Bali," the student said.

The chief of the operational command that time happened to visit Bank
Suma. The student then asked for recommendation. Theo asked the
student why he asked for the money totalling Rp11 million, and the
student answered that he wanted to go to Bali.

"Then, I asked based on my sense of intelligence, `whose son are you
actually? If he was not a son of a district head or a high ranking
official, he must not have such a lot of money," Theo said.

It turned out that the student was a son of a farmer in the poorest
area in East Timor. When he named the area, Theo was increasingly
curious as to the best of his knowledge, the total amount of all
farmers` money in the area would not even reach Rp100,000.

Eventually, the student`s house was raided, and money in US and
Australian dollars as well as Japanese yen was found there. When he
was questioned about sources from which he received the money, it was
revealed that he was a broker for Xanana.

"Any foreign journalist from Australia or other countries have to pay
2,000 dollars for meeting with Xanana," according to Theo who said
that he forgot the student`s name.

From the student, Theo looked into the presence of Xanana.

"In Dili, Xanana was frequently found in three areas. I Asked, `where
is Xanana now?` The student said, `here`", Theo said.

That time (November 19, 1992) at 7.30 pm, an operation to arrest
Xanana was planned. The intelligence detachment command immediately
deployed personnel and proposed that Xanana be arrested that evening.

Theo said Xanana could not be arrested that evening, and he (Theo)
ordered that the raid must be conducted the following day in the
morning. Why? Because his neighbour was a policeman, Corporal
Augusto, who married a widow of a Fretilin member.

As a policeman, Augusto used to go to work at 5 am to manage the traffic.

"If I raided him (Xanana) that evening, he would defend himself. And
if Xanana was there, he could move to the next room and could then
flee," Theo said.

The operation to arrest Xanana was then conducted on Friday morning,
November 20, 1992. When it was found that Augusto had already left
his house, the raid started. When the operation was taking place,
Xanana was with a girl who was a senior high school student found to
be a step-child of Augusto.

"That`s what Xanana liked. For Xanana, he must be with a woman
wherever he was," Theo said.

When he was raided, Xanana surrendered himself without defence as he
was that time unarmed. Being handcuffed, Xanana wearing a jacket and
a short was then taken to Theo`s official house in Dili.

"On his arrival, I ordered to put off Xanana`s handcuff and I shook
his hand. And my wife offered Xanana a drink -- coffee, tea, milk or
chocolate. We treated him well," Theo said telling the event 13 years ago.

Of the same rank

Theo said that he and Xanana were of the same rank as commander. The
risk was that it was Theo or Xanana who would win. The important
thing for them as commanders was that anything done by their men was
the responsibility of the commanders.

"Agree? He agreed. Hence, whatever questions to him including those
on the setting villages on fire there and raids here were answered
that he was responsible for the problems," he said.

Theo reported Xanana`s arrest to the then Indonesian Armed Forces
(ABRI) chief, Try Sutrisno, by phone.

"Pak Try, I have arrested Xanana. Should I finish him, sir?" Theo said.

The ABRI chief did not immediately answer the question. Seconds of
silence had elapsed. Then unclear voice was heard on the phone.

"Wait a minute.... I`ll call you back," Try said.

That time, Xanana was still at Theo`s house. If ordered, the
operational command chief was ready to execute Xanana. However, the
phone call from the ABRI chief did not ring. Ten minutes had elapsed,
and even there was no sign after 20 minutes.

While waiting for the call from the ABRI chief, Theo decided to chat
with Xanana. Theo began the chat by saluting Xanana as a commander
but the latter could not do the same as he was handcuffed, but then
Theo oredered the intelligence team to put off Xanana`s handcuff and
then he saluted Theo.

Theo wanted to remind Xanana that he uphold leadership values
especially as a commander who must be responsible for what have been
done by his men.

"I am a commander here and you are Fretilin`s commander, so we have
the same responsibility," Theo said and Xanana agreed with Theo`s
remark. This then made Xanana`s trial easy as the Fretilin leader
admitted he was responsible for all he had done. Eventually, Theo
could meet all his expectations including that on an effort to move
Xanana to Jakarta.

Following the conversation between the two commanders, there was no
telephone call from the ABRI chief until Theo decided to send Xanana
to the operational command post and the former did physical exercises.

"In the afternoon, the ABRI chief and a big group arrived in Dili," Theo said.

On his arrival, the ABRI chief immediately called up Xanana to the
former`s official residence. Then, the ABRI chief had a dialog with
Xanana in the presence of all the chief`s group members including the
then East Timor`s governor, Abilio Soares.

It was finally decided that Xanana was not detained by the military
but the Dili police as he was considered only as a criminal. In
addition, the decision was made in order that Xanana could be tried
under the Criminal Code, not the law on subversion.

"Law on subversion covers violations against the ways to live a
national and state life, while the Criminal Code deals with criminal
acts. This is the image that I created," Theo said.

In the process of investigation for trial, like what was said by
Lt.Gen. (ret) Johny Lumintang who was that time chief of the Dili
military command, Xanana once went on hunger strike. Theo then asked
the chief of the Dili police Col.Nugroho Djajoesman about the
police`s preparations in response to Xanana`s hunger strike. An
ambulance was then prepared, and then Theo ordered to take a coffin
from the Dili military command.

The dialog between Theo and the Dili police chief was learned by
Xanana making him (Xanana) ask for coffee and meals. It seemed that
Xanana was also afraid of death.

Theo`s measure was understandable as Xanana who was cooperative
before turned to be contrariwise following the arrival of the UN
secretary general`s special envoy, Waco. Since the beginning, Theo
disagreed with foreign intervention, and therefore Theo took a stiff measure.

However, preasures from many parties made Xanana go out of Dili. For
legal process, Xanana was then brought to Jakarta where he was
visited by officials from the International Committee of the Red
Cross (ICRC) on December 7, 1992.

"I said (Xanana) should not be brought to the Cipinang jail in
Jakarta. For the time being, he was moved to Semarang (Central Java).
For fear of disappearing in Semarang, Xanana was moved again to
Cipinang where he met other political prisoners," Theo said.

The Dili district court on May 20, 1993, sentenced Xanana to life
imprisonment. On August 17 (Indonesian Independence Day), 1993,
Xanana who served his jail term in Cipinang received clemency from
then president Soeharto making him only sentenced to 20 years in jail.

On August 30, 1999, the East Timorese people conducted popular
consultations under the auspices of the United Nations. On September
3, 1999, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan announced the result of the
popular consultations in Dili. 78.5 percent of 451,79 voters rejected
autonomy. Only 21.5 percent accepted autonomy. It means that the
pro-independence group won and the pro-integration group lost.

The East Timorese people have then rejected the special atonomy and
shown their willing to start a transitional process towards
independence, Annan said at the UN headquarters in New York.

Several days after the announcement of the popular consultations, the
history changed quickly. Xanana was released from the Cipinang jail.
On May 20, 2002, the UN officially declared East Timor as an
independent state and then Xanana Gusmao came out as East Timorese presisent.

That is Xanana`s life history. (*)
