Kompolnas: Violation of Human Rights in Poso
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: The National Police Commission (Kompolnas) has concluded there are indications of serious human rights violations committed by the police when handling suspected terrorists in Poso, Sulawesi.
"That's a violation against humanity and norms," member of the National Police, Commissioner, M. Nasser, said on Monday, March 5.
He said that Kompolnas conducted an investigation and questioned the head of the Anti-Terror Special Detachment (Densus) 88 about the case. It was concluded that the people responsible for the violence are not members of Densus 88, but Mobile Brigade (Brimob) personnel.
On Friday, March 1, a 13-minute footage was uploaded to Youtube. The video depicted dozens of men in Brimob and Densus 88 uniforms abusing and torturing a number of people.
Komnas HAM Commissioner Siane Indriani said she had asked the Witness and Victim Protection Agency (LPSK) to protect two key witnesses in the case, Wiwin Kalahe and Tugiran.
Brigadier-General Boy Rafli Amar, spokesman for the Indonesia National Police (Polri), said that the video showed what happened in 2007. "We are reviewing and studying the footage. Preliminary results from a study by our Criminal Investigation team shows that the footage shows one of the suspects we arrested in January 2007 in Poso," he said on Monday.
At the time, Boy said, the police were holding an operation related to violence and social conflicts in Poso. A Task Force was formed in Poso to overcome the situation and take the necessary law enforcement.
