LH submission on proposed immigration law revision

The IOM and the RDTL State Secretariat for Security (Police) are in the process of writing a new Law on Immigration and Asylum to replace the 2003 law currently in effect.  La'o Hamutuk has opened a web page on this topic, which includes our written submission to this process (in Tetum). The article at right (click to see it larger), which La'o Hamutuk wrote for the Timor Post on 28 April, summarizes our submission, with the headline "Immigration Law, guideline for people, not wall against people."
