Indonesia, E. Timor Need Extradition Agreement: Officer

JAKARTA, April 4

The cross-border crimes which occur in Indonesia's border with East Timor can only be handled if the two sign an extradition agreement, East Nusa Tenggara Police chief Brig. Gen. Jacki Uly told reporters in the provincial capital of Kupang on Thursday.

He was quoted by the Antara News Agency as saying that the cooperation between policemen of Indonesia and East Timor to crack down on cross-border criminals can well be carried out with the extradition agreement.

"(So far) if a crime occurs at the border, we can only inform Timor Leste's civilian police," he said after receiving four civilian policemen from East Timor.

The meeting between Jacki and the civilian policemen led by Commissioner Peter Miller did not discuss any cooperation or plan to cooperate between the two police forces.

"The meeting was only informal. There was no serious matter that was discussed. It was only a friendly meeting," Jacki added.

East Timor is set to gain full independence from the United Nations on May 20 this year.
