We Are Not Lame Ducks, Police Claim

The National Police have rejected allegations that they are lame ducks when it comes to dealing with hard-line organizations, including the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

‘We will definitely take firm action against whoever broke the law no matter who they are, including those from the FPI,’ spokesman Insp. Gen. Edward Aritonang said on Tuesday.

Edward said action would also be taken against police officers found guilty of professional neglect.

He was referring to Banyuwangi Police Chief Adjutant Chief Comr. Slamet Hadi Supraptoyo, who failed to prevent thugs, allegedly led by the FPI, from breaking up a House of Representatives’ meeting on free health care because they believed the purpose of the event was to revive support for the banned Indonesian Communist Party (PKI).

The National Commission for Human Rights (Komnas HAM) said on Monday that it would establish a special team to investigate allegations of attacks by FPI on lawmakers from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P). The lawmakers have filed charges against the violence.

Adjutant Chief Comr. Slamet Hadi Supraptoyo will be questioned.

The FPI is also expected to be questioned over other alleged attacks and raids on lawful gatherings, including an incident on April 30 in which it disrupted a human-rights training session for transvestites organized by Komnas HAM in Depok.
