The government repeatedly harassed the daily Suara Timor Lorosae in February, apparently in retaliation for its reporting on famine-related deaths. The Land and Property Department ordered the newspaper's management to vacate its premises. Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri imposed an indefinite boycott of the paper, banning its journalists from attending official press conferences.
