FROM THE FORMER OFFICE OF MR. XANANA GUSMAO
As you are all aware, the CNRT/CN was formally dissolved on 9 June 2001. Consequently, Mr. Gusmao is no longer President of the CNRT/CN and the Office that was set up in February 1999 to assist his work has ceased its functions.
As of today, 25 June 2001, this e-mail address [firstname.lastname@example.org] will also cease to be a means to contact the Office of Mr. Gusmao and/or the former CNRT/CN President.
We kindly request that all matters addressed to Mr. Gusmao be, as from today, addressed to the already existing institutions in East Timor and relevant sectoral departments within the East Timor Transitional Administration. If you are abroad and need contact details with ETTA and UNTAET, please contact UNTAETís Protocol Office (Chief of Protocol: Mr. Gamaliel Ndaruzaniye, phone - + 61 407 390847, e-mail: email@example.com).
This message is from all of us who worked with Mr. Gusmao and who have been so kindly assisted by all of you throughout the past two and a half years. Without your continued support, understanding and friendship our work would certainly have been harder to carry out and surely less efficient. It was a pleasure for all of us to work with and to learn from you. The work shared with you, in particular throughout 1999, has become an unforgetable experience.
All the best in your work and personal lives,
Our warmest regards
Former Office of the CNRT/CN
Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao
