Supreme Court President Resigns Amid No Go From Government Featured

DILI: The President of the Supreme Court, Guilhermino da Silva, has submitted his letter of resignation, ending a nomination stand off between the government and Silva.

Silva had sought to continue in the top court position but had failed to win needed State support needed in a President change-over.

It is understood President Taur Matan Ruak had sent a letter of support to extend Silva’s position that had been rejected by the government.

Prime Minister Rui Maria de Araujo said Monday that nomination for a new supreme court chief would be the responsibility of President-elect Francisco Guterres ‘Lu-Olo’ and ratified by national parliament.

Requests for comment from Silva by the Independente went unanswered at the time print.
