The government of Timor Leste has announced that it had once again decided to declare an additional day-off public sector holiday on Tuesday August 20, 2013, for the "celebrations of the 38th Anniversary of the Armed Forces of National Liberation of Timor-Leste" (FALINTIL).
As per the aforementioned announcement, this one-off public sector holiday on Tuesday August 20, 2013, is granted "to allow the presence of civil servants and agents on the celebrations, that will take place in Betano, Manufahi district".
Three years ago (18-Aug-2010), the government of Timor Leste had declared Friday, August 20, 2010, the date of the 35th anniversary of the Armed Forces for the National Liberation of Timor-Leste (FALINTIL) as a one-off public holiday.
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 2013, which was announced at the beginning of this year (28-Jan-2013).
