Bareskrim Polri explained the reason why it did not handcuff four members of the FPI special Laskar guarding Rizieq Shihab when they caught them and took them into the police car.
At that time, the police said that two people were shot for shooting at a police car.
Meanwhile, the other four people were arrested at the KM 50 toll rest area and transferred to an officer car. However, they were not handcuffed.
“Why did he (four Laskar) not be handcuffed because the team that was following was not a team to appoint, the surveillance team to observe. They were not prepared to arrest. However, if they receive an attack, they are ready, “said the Director of General Crimes (Dirtipidum), Bareskrim Polri Brig. Gen. Andi Rian, to reporters, Monday, December 14.
Because they were not handcuffed, the four FPI Laskar tried to seize firearms that were held by the police in the officers’ cars because they no longer had weapons as resistance.
“Two suspects or two perpetrators, one of whom tried to seize a member from behind. And in addition to trying to seize (weapons), it is no longer possible to use talk,” said Andi.
Previously, the head of the Indonesian Police Watch Presidium, Neta S. Pane, revealed the irregularities in the reconstruction process or the reconstruction of the clash that resulted in the shooting of six special FPI troops by the police.
“IPW saw three SOP violations committed by members of the National Police, especially in the case of the death of four FPI members in a police officer car,” said Neta in his statement, Monday, December 14.
First, said Neta, the police explained that the four FPI members who were still alive, after two of their friends were shot dead and put in a police car without being handcuffed.
“This is very strange, when Rizieq himself was taken to the detention cell at Polda Metro Jaya, he was handcuffed by the authorities. Why were the four FPI members who had just finished shooting with the police not handcuffed when they were put into the police car? ” said Neta.
Second, Neta considers that the police effort to put the four FPI members who had just finished shooting with the police into a police car that has a capacity of eight people, which is also filled with police officers, is absurd.
Third, the Polri members who should have been trained were proven not to be promoters and unable to knock out unarmed FPI members, so the police fought at close range until the four FPI members died.
“From the three carelessness, it is clear that the police apparatus violated the SOP which caused the four FPI members to die in one car. From the explanation of the Head of the Police Public Relations Division, it can be seen how careless the police officers were, “he said.
