Timor-Leste: UN Reports On Violence - Peters Calls For Action
Timor-Leste

Foreign Minister Winston Peters is urging key players in Timor-Leste to respond cautiously and positively to the United Nations Special Commission of Inquiry's report into violence that shook the country earlier this year. The report recommends that a number of senior government figures be investigated or prosecuted over the unrest that led to the deaths of 37 people in April and May. See...

    Housing: Nats Blame Labour For Bolshey Tenants

    National Party Housing spokesman Phil Heatley says Chris Carter is now reaping what Labour has sown over the past seven years. "It's not surprising that the occupants of a state house in Auckland are refusing to leave, given that for years Labour has been promoting unrealistic expectations among those who rely on the state for some assistance."
