PETALING JAYA: Malaysian officers based in Timor Leste will have the opportunity to enjoy the Hari Raya celebrations as they recently received some festive goodies from the Defence Ministry.  

In a press statement, the ministry said it had organised a special flight to deliver the packages to the Malaysian team under the United Nations Mission of Support in East Timor (Unmiset). 

A simple ceremony was held at the FRU Heliport Base in Dili, where Unmiset force commander Lt Gen Datuk Khairuddin Mat Yusuf received the packages on behalf of 151 officers.  

The officers were from the Armed Forces, police and the Prisons Department.
