DILI, 04 june 2023 (TATOLI) – The Timorese National Police (PNTL) rescued ten Pakistani citizens in Dili who claim to have been victims of human trafficking.

The head of the PNTL’s Criminal Investigation Department, Superintendent João Belo dos Reis, explained in a press release that the PNTL had received several complaints about the victims from both local authorities and local communities.

“A foreign company illegally hired these citizens to work in Timor-Leste. They arrived here between 2022 and 2024 and to date have not received any salary,” said Reis.

PNTL is already investigating the case and will submit its investigation report to the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
