East Timor demands return of documents


East Timor said it will ask an international court in the Netherlands today to order Australia to return documents seized by the Australian secret service relating to a legal dispute over oil and gas revenue-sharing between the two countries.

East Timorese Minister of State Agio Pereira said the documents related to East Timor’s challenge to the validity of a bilateral treaty struck with Australia in 2006 over sharing seabed oil and gas reserves between the countries worth billions of dollars.
