A text by Leidar, a human rights activist based and Bidau, Dili, published on Timor Online casts suspition at Xanana's involvement at Monday's incidents. “Xanana’s Convoy was attacked almost one hour later after the attack at President Residence. How was the security information circulated at that time? Xanana’s Security guards did not inform him about the attacking at president house? One hour for security respond from Dili not only reaching Balibar, but may reached Aileu. Where Xanana was at the time of his convoy was attacking?”
