A Northern Territory Bar Association, que corresponde à Ordem de Advogados de Darwin (Austrália), publicou no seu site um comunicado e um relatório assinado por Alistar Wyvill, datado de 20 de Novembro pp. sobre a expulsão dos juízes estrangeiros de Timor-Leste.

 

"It is not clear to me that any of the expelled judges and lawyers listed above had any connection with the tax cases against the resources companies. In fact, it has been  positively asserted to me that the expelled judges “had nothing to do with the $30m case”. The President of the Court of Appeal also confirmed this to me. It is also difficult to see how a member of the Anti-Corruption Commission might have any role to play in a tax recovery case. Nor, in spite of request, has any material been provided to me which might justify the criticism of the judges that did have the conduct of these cases and, if criticism might be appropriate, why that could not have been pursued in an appeal.
Further, almost every “insider” to whom I have spoken who is independent of the Timor LesteGovernment (including the judges to whom I spoke) connects these events with the corruption cases against 8 members of the current government including the speaker (‘president’) of Parliament and to other cases related to corruption which are presently proceeding through the courts."

(...)

"The position of the judges in Timor Leste is made more problematic because, as far as I could see, they cannot rely upon the advocacy, support or protection of an organised and independent legal profession. JSMP appears to be almost the only local voice attempting to defend judicial independence and the rule of law in Timor Leste. Further, the expulsion of the Portuguese judges – part of whose function was to assist in the training of the local judges - has left the local judges even more isolated."
