Explanation from Civil Society

Letter to the Editor, published (in Tetum) in Timor Post 24-25 February 2009

The Timor Post daily newspaper editorial on Friday February 20, 2009, about Will the Heavy Oil Project be Implemented? stated the arguments for and against this power plant implementation. And ideas against this project come from the opposition party Fretilin.

But not only people from Fretilin are concerned about this project, but also people from  civil society which has an important role to provide balance and transformation within the community, to ensure development which is sustainable and benefits the peoples interests. 

Today, as a member of civil society, Lao Hamutuk, together with other NGOs, is monitoring and analyzing the plan to generate electricity using Heavy Oil in Timor-Leste. Lao Hamutuk is analyzing the impacts which could occur from this facility on the environment and health of Timor-Lestes people. We are concerned that this requires transparency for sustainable development.

Everyone knows that  electricity as very important for Timor-Leste communities. We also think that an in-depth environmental impact analysis should be done before the plant is built, which can identify what is the impacts will be when this power plant is operating. Civil society like Lao Hamutuk are not organizations in opposition to the Timor-Leste Government; Lao Hamutuk takes positions as an important  partner for the State and the people.

Therefore, as a part of civil society, Lao Hamutuk would like to inform the public that Lao Hamutuks activities related to the heavy oil power plant project are not to support or provide a channel for any group, political party, or individual interest. Civil society wants only to support the State to provide benefits all our people, and would like that decisions are made wisely for the whole nation, based on facts and not only opinions.

To know more about civil societys work, especially Lao Hamutuks, please visit our office in Farol (behind Yayasan Hak) or go to our website or send us some ideas by email to or telephone +670-3325013.

We thank you for your consideration of this information.
