Merauke, 28/2 (Jubi) – Commander of Lantamal XI Merauke, Brigadier General Marine Buyung Lalana admitted about marine soldiers who were on duty at Torasi Station often got paid from the fishermen during their home trip from Papua New Guinea.

“Those were individuals and have been removed,” he told to tabloidjubi.com at Pantai Lampu Satu Merauke on Friday (28/2).

Responding to the issue of 5 million deposits to Lantamal by some business holders of sea cucumber, he urged those who were disadvantaged make a report to the police or the Navy.
“I have a strong commitment that in the future the soldiers will never commit such ways. I won’t hesitate to condemn them by Law. I would be embarrassed if found such thing happened. Soldiers should be protect instead of torment the people,” he said.

However, he can accept the fishermen’ acts to give some of their catches to soldiers. He considered this is a form of good relationship between people and soldiers.
