The government of Timor Leste has announced that it had once again decided to extend the annual Easter non-working public holidays in Timor Leste by declaring an additional day-off public sector holiday (tolerαnsia pontu) for Maundy Thursday, on April 2, 2015.
As per the aforementioned announcement, this one-off public sector holidays is granted to "all the public servants, staff and agents of the Ministries or dependent services, as well as the institutes and organisms integrated in the State's indirect administration".
The aforementioned full day public holiday on Thursday, April 2, 2015, is given as "Holy Thursday, ..., is the last day of Lent in the catholic religion's calendar, and is one of the solemnities of great importance to the Christian Community in Timor-Leste.".
Contrary to the Easter public sector holidays declared in previous years (15-Apr-2014, 25-Mar-2013, 04-Apr-2012 and 11-Apr-2011), this year, there will be no public sector holiday Easter Monday in Timor Leste.
According to the Secretariat of State of the Council of Ministers of Timor Leste, this decision is based on law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (12-Aug-2005) and the list of official public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2015, which was announced at the beginning of this year (27-Feb-2015).
