At the same place, the Chairman of the Fretilin, MP David Dias Ximenes ‘Mandati’ also stressed that it’s time to find the remains of the Martyrs, and Heroes.

Mandati urges the relevant authorities to immediately find alternatives to cooperate with Indonesian authorities in searching for the remains of Timor-Leste’s heroes: “We also need to hold those who commit human rights violations in East Timor accountable.”

“I have always raised the matter of finding the remains of our heroes, but it seems that no one cares. So let’s make an effort to find their remains,” Mandati concluded.
