EDITOR.ID, Jakarta,- Indonesian police suspect that the children killed in the riots in Petamburan and Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta were deliberately fed martyrs. Then now they died from being hit by firearms. Actually, who fired on these children?
Police in collaboration with an independent team formed a fact-finding team are currently working to investigate behind the deaths of a number of demonstrators acting anarchists.
From the beginning the police apparatus had firmly refused to use weapons in the task of dispelling the masses.
Research Professor in Political Development Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) Hermawan Sulistyo found a number of irregularities in the deaths of eight people in the riot incident on May 22, 2019.
These irregularities include gunshots and mysterious corpses.
According to Hermawan, the eight victims were shot with a single bullet method and all were hit on the neck and chest on the same side.
Hermawan said, the eight victims were shot with a single bullet method and all were hit on the neck and chest on the same side.
According to Hermawan, the perpetrator shot the victim at close range because he saw only one proof of the bullet, but immediately killed him. The shooting was allegedly from the top of the building.
“All single bullet shots on the neck behind the ear. Only one but immediately turned off, “he said when contacted on Sunday (05/26/2019)
According to Hermawan, police officers’ shots are usually random and not a bullet single in the head. He considered there was an element of deliberation by looking at the target point of shooting in the same place.
“Right, it’s not easy to shoot (in part) the neck,” Hermawan said as quoted by Tempo.
He also guessed, the type of firearm used was a Glock type gun used by officers including generals.
Whereas if for example the police use weapons with sharp bullets, then the direction of the shot must be from the front. Because at that time the masses were facing the police. “If the police make a shot, the bullet will penetrate from the front, this is from behind,” he said.
In addition, evidence of hundreds of bullet casings turned out not to belong to the National Police’s firearms. “The type is different, this type is used for generals,” Hermawan said.
Conclusion Hermawan the shooter is not a police officer. “So the eight people who died were proven to be shot by a single bullet, everything was on the neck and chest on the same side, so my conclusion was shooting instead of the police,” said the man who was familiarly called Kiki.
In addition, another irregularity that Hermawan saw was the unclearness of the person who brought the victims to the hospital.
The bodies of the eight victims had no administrative records at the hospital. Who took it. Where the victim’s crime scene was taken and taken.
“Mosok RS does not ask: Who is it, how come, carry this dead body?” He said.
So that the location of the shooting is unknown due to the unclear identity that took the victim.
“The bodies that were carried all without identity. Besides that, the whole body was not clear who took it and who sent it to the hospital. Where the victim’s crime scene died. There is no data on who took and carried it. The alias is gone,” he said.
n a series of actions from 21-22 May 2019 in the Bawaslu building, Jakarta, which led to chaos in several places, eight people were killed and hundreds of others were injured. Indonesian Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian formed an investigation team to investigate the May 22, 2019 riots.
“The Chief of Police has formed an investigation team led by the National Police General Inspectorate Commissioner General Moechgiyarto to find out the causes and all aspects,” said Head of the Public Relations Division of the National Police Inspector General Mohammad Iqbal in the Coordinating Ministry for Politics, Law and Security, Central Jakarta on Thursday, May 23 2019.
The police formed a fact-finding team to investigate victims of children who were allegedly not perpetrators of riots but received police action to die during the demonstration May 22, 2019.
“The fact finding team will conduct the first meeting then determine the follow-up plan and immediately conduct a comprehensive investigation,” said the Head of the National Police Information Bureau Brigadier General Police Dedi Prasetyo in Jakarta, Saturday (05/25/2019).
He revealed, his party was preparing fact-finding team personnel. The team will conduct the first meeting to determine the follow-up plan and investigation.
Dedi ensured that the results of a comprehensive investigation of the death toll of children will be delivered openly to the public.
“A fact-finding team has been formed, and will immediately work in order to conduct an investigation into the tracing of cases on May 21-22,” he explained.
