Mako Tabuni Was Shot for Resisting Arrest, Seizing Police Gun, Police Chief Says
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Indonesian Police Chief Gen. Timur Pradopo said efforts to capture Mako Tabuni had resulted from information derived from three previous arrests. Mako was suspected of being one of the perpetrators of a string of mysterious shootings in Papua since May 22. However, police attempts to capture [him] at 9 a.m. was not fruitful. "Prior to the capture, a conversation took place. Then the gun of a police officer was seized, so other police members protected [the officer]," said Timur in his press statement at the State Palace on June 14, 2012. Because Mako was threatening officers with a gun, the officers in the field had to disarm him and as a result, he was shot. "He seized a gun, so we had to disarm him. A handgun with 18 bullets was found on his body," said Timur. This happened in the wake of the incident in which motorcycles, cars and houses were set on fire. However, the Cenderawasih Military Command (Kodam) put the situation under control. "I call upon the people to remain calm. The situation in Jayapura and its vicinities had been put under control by the local police aided by Kodam and the intelligence," said the former police chief of Jakarta. ARYANI KRISTANTI
