Flight Attendant Hit Case Investigated

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - First Grade Police Inspector Wagino, Head of Police Pangkalan Baru, Central Bangka, Bangka Belitung stated that the investigation towards Zakaria Umar Hadi is still in process. Zakaria is the head of Bangka Belitung Province Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM). He is a suscpect of hitting Febriani, a flight attendant of Sriwijaya Air.

"The investigation is still ongoing," Wagino told Tempo on Thursday.

Previously, Sriwijaya Air spokesman Agus Sujono stated that the violent act happened when the airplane was landing. He said that before the plane was going to take off, Febriani also asked the suspect to turn off his cellphone. "It happened repetitively. The man was reminded during take-off, and again he tried to use his cellphone during landing," said Agus.

Upon a repeated warning, Zakaria became annoyed and threw a tantrum. He hit Febriani’s left cheek and ears. "We could confirm that there had been a physical violence. She was indeed hit," Agus confirmed.

Agus regrets Zakaria’s response to the warning, saying Febriani was merely enforcing the common procedure for the sake of passengers’ safety. "Upon warning, he should have apologized. On the contrary, he did a completely different action," he said.

The incident happened on a flight from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, flight number SJ078. Febriani is one of Sriwijaya Air’s senior flight attendants with experience of over than 5 years.

According to Wagino, there has yet been an official confirmation on Zakaria’s motive to hit Febriani. He ensured that Zakaria will be charged with Article 351 of Indonesian Penal Code on maltreatment. "After the investigation, we will immediately know the conjunction," said Wagino. LINDA HAIRANI
