I was in East Timor in 2006/7. It was very bad there at the time. At lease this video shows the people are happy but still struggling. I hope the politicians realise they can no longer steal from their people.

As an aid worker who continues to travel to East Timor on a regular basis what this video outlines is the truth about corruption and nepotism. It is disgraceful that people who have fought so hard for their independence and future away from the oppression of the Indonesians should now have to face politicians whoa re stealing form the very top. A great video!
