Jr. High School Students Report Molestation by PE Teacher

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Thirty-five students of a junior high school in East Jakarta are suspected to have been victims of molestation. Three victims have filed a report to the police. The child molester is their own physical education (FE) teacher. 

"We continue to develop the case," Pasar Rebo Police Precinct's Chief, Comr. Joko Waluyo, told Tempo on Thursday, January 11.

Jasra Putra, commissioner of the Indonesian Child Protection Commission, said that male students of grades 7 and 8 became victims of molestation by AK (32), their own PE teacher. 

He said that he had coordinated with the Social Affairs Ministry's Social Rehabilitation Directorate. Soon, all three victims will be rehabilitated for the trauma they experienced.

"Usually, victims are reluctant to file reports out of shame," Jasra said.

AK had been named as a suspect. On December 27 last year he was arrested by the police, four days after one student reported his crime. 

The case was first revealed from a WhatsApp group chat, as AK's neighbors grew suspicious of the man, who brought students to his home almost every day.

Then, the police conducted a bust and captured AK at his home. It was said the victims were afraid to report what AK did to them because the teacher threatened to kill them.
