|Unreleased UN Security Survey|
The survey of thousands of Timorese across 13 district was conducted by The Demographic Institute Faculty of Economics University of Indonesia (Contractor) under contract number Security Perception Survey (PS-‐UNDP 007/2009). Indonesian experts surveyed Timorese citizens on behalf of the United Nations to determine the perception on security in Timor-leste.
The survey report was submitted in April 2010 and has had secret ever since while UNMIT wait for Government to agree to release.
UN Peacekeeping Chief Alain Leroy will be in Dili next week to review UNMIT and Government performance. This secret survey was not even mentioned in the UN Report to the Security Council (Report of the Secretary-General on the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (for the period from 21 September 2010 to 7 January 2011) in 25 January 2011 this year.
The survey is supposed to inform and support the final review document which the UN Report to the Security Council says in
"Section 31 The finalization of the draft document on the comprehensive review of the security sector has been delayed. Currently, the Government and the Office of the President are reviewing the document, in consultation with UNMIT. While it appears unlikely that the document will be finalized in the near future, many of the elements identified in the draft document have already been addressed, as noted above (see para. 30), and, once finalized, it will serve as a useful reference document."
The UNMIT SSR appears to be falling.
