Papua Police Officer Allegedly Trades in Stolen Motorcycles

Jayapura, Jubi – An officer of Papua Police is accused of trading in stolen motorcycles.

Papua Police Chief Inspector General Yotje Mende said it’s not only the military members who become receivers of stolen motorcycles as reported by media but some police officers were allegedly involved.
“It involves both military and police officers,” Mende told reporters on Thursday (29/1).

He said  the officer would be fired if he was found guilty.
“I have proposed taking him to a tribunal  for his dismissal. We don’t want to keep such officer.  So, he wouldn’t wear the police uniform at the court. It’s shameful. So, it’s not only involved the military but police officers. The officer, he is non-commissioned officer at the Papua Police,” he said. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
