    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Head of the National Police’s Indonesia Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (Inafis), Adj. Grand Commissioner Yani on Monday said that it will examine the CCTV recording from the passenger boarding of Sriwijaya Air Flight SJ182. 

    He said that this will be done to help police forensics identify the passengers to correspond with field findings in the evacuation at the Flight SJ182 wreckage site. 

    “Inafis has accommodated and will analyze the CCTV data prior to passengers entering the aircraft,” said Yani in a virtual press conference on January 18.

    The process will involve the use of face recognition technology and compare them to data from the electronic ID card database kept by the Directorate General of Population and Civil Registry. This will help support the fingerprint identification. 

    To date, the National Police Bhayangkara Hospital in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, has received 308 body bags and managed to identify 29 of the passengers who were onboard the fateful flight of SJ182 that crashed at the Thousand Islands on January 9.
