Three Alleged Bullet Buyers Named Suspects

Jayapura, Jubi – The Papua Police have named three alleged bullet buyers from soldiers as suspects following their arrest at Entrop last month.

Papua Police Spokesperson Senior Commissioner Patrige Renwarin said the three persons, identified as FK, YW, and AJ, were named suspects  because they bought bullets from soldiers and gave them to an armed group in Lanny Jaya Regency.
“They made the confession during the questioning. They confessed that they were ordered by Puron Wenda, the leader of rebel group in Lanny Jaya who often attacked the military and police officers as well as civilians. But the investigator is still questioning them intensively,” Renwarin said on Saturday (7/2/2015).

According to him, the suspects were ordered to buy and search the bullets in the area of Jayapura City. He said their network is around of the capital of Papua Province. The Police has questioned three witnesses in this case, but they are planning to further question three other witnesses to complete the file of suspects.
“They are the undercover networks. The Crime investigator of Papua Police has submitted the Acknowledgement Letter of Investigation to the Papua State Prosecutor Office,” he said.

Earlier, the Papua Police Chief, the Inspector General Yotje Mende said the three suspects were sued in accordance of Emergency Law No.12 Article 1/1951 about the ownership of illegal firearms and bullets. They would be sentenced for life imprisonment at maximum. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)
