A WARNING TO WOMEN IN TIMOR-LESTE

.

Dear All,

I would like to bring to your attention an incident that happened yesterday in the vicinity of Timor Hotel.

A female took a taxi and the taxi driver attempted to assault her, in order to escape his intentions, she got out of the taxi while it was moving. Luckily she only sustained light injuries and was able to leave the hospital after a few hours (I have confirmed this personally).

This is not the first report of such an incident, and both Timorese and Foreign women have reported to have experienced taxi drivers attempting to assault them.

Therefore please disseminate this message as widely as possible and warn women to try and avoid taxis, and if this is not possible, do not get into a taxi alone and especially not after dark.

Please note however that yesterdays incident happened at lunch time.

With kind regards

Charlemagne
