The United Nations Mission of Support to East Timor (UNMISET) was established on 20 May 2002,[1] the same day which East Timor became an internationally recognized independent state and the United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) came to an end.[citation needed]

Military and police forces from contributing nations were put under control of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General. Following a progress report submitted by the Secretary-General in 2003,[2] the initial 12 month mandate was extended into two years,[3] subsequently extended to 20 May 2005,[4][5] after which it was replaced by United Nations Office in Timor Leste (UNOTIL).[6]

A final report was then presented to the Security Council and a statement was made about the continuing help with a Border Patrol Unit.[7]

The mandates of the Security Council Resolutions also provided for a Serious Crimes Unit to investigate the events of 1999.
