The US Ambassador Klemm writes that 

"FRETILIN MP Jose Teixeira noted that Gusmao's "refusal to listen to anyone has alienated these parties." These contacts also suggested that the Prime Minister may have an alcohol problem which is impairing his relations with others. During a May 5 meeting with Poloff, James Dunn, author and longtime observer of Timor, reported the Prime Minister angered President Ramos-Horta by turning up "visibly drunk" at a reception in honor of Prince Albert of Monaco in April."
