Jayapura, 2/3 (Jubi) – Police’s delay in detaining Maybrat Regent Bernard Safrim who has been declared as a corruption and money laundering suspect has drawn public criticism.

Yusak Reba, the law expert from Cenderawih University, questioned the commitment of the Papua police in  eliminating corruption in the region.
“The Papua Police is risking their image if they do not handle this case properly. I consider there is a purpose to disregard this case, because by law, someone who has been a suspect after an investigation should be detained,” Reba said by phone on Sunday afternoon (2/3).

He further said in some corruption cases, the police tended to detain lower-profile suspects such as treasurer, contractors or project leaders, but find it difficult to arrest regional heads or parliament members.

Earlier, the Director of LP3BH Manokwari, Yan Cristian Warinussy said detaining the Maybrat regent did not require a presidential permit because he had been declared as a suspect. (Jubi/Indrayadi TH/rom)
