Bima Victim Shot after Surrendering
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Nur Kholis, the National Commission of Human Rights’ (Komnas HAM) commissioner, says he has received information that police shot residents who had already surrendered in the brutal incident at Sape Ferry Port in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) on Saturday.
Komnas maintained that three people were killed, not two as claimed by the police. They are Arif Rahman (19), Syaiful (17) and Arifuddin Arrahman. “15 people were injured,” Nur added.
Based on the residents’ report to the NTB branch of the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi), Syaiful was killed when he tried to help Arif. Syaiful was shot in the heart from a short distance although he had already raised his hands to surrender.
NTB Walhi coordinator Ali Usman said the police invaded the crowd with tear gas, water cannons as well as rubber and sharp bullets. At two o’clock, the police turned off the power and put up barbed wire. “Some Mobile Brigade members were even on the roofs of the residents’ homes,” said Ali.
National Police spokesman Saud Usman Nasution confirmed that Arif and Syaiful were shot from a short distance. However, the police could not say yet whether there was a violation of procedure. “We’re still investigating,” said Saud.
