Jayapura, Jubi – Two military personnel have been questioned over the shooting incident which killed two civilians and injured four others on Friday (29/8/2015) in Timika, the military said.

Regional Military Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Infantry Teguh Pudji said the unnamed military personnel are currently being questioned by Timika Detachment Military Police.
“After the incident, Cenderawasih Regional Military promptly sent investigators to the scene,” Teguh said via email received on Monday night (31/8/2015).

He said the investigation team included members of the Military Police, intelligence personnel and District Command personnel. He stated the Military Command would not whitewash the crime.
“If they are found guilty, they will receive sanctions and face the legal process. A soldier shall not hurt people’s heart; instead they shall nurture, protect and secure people at anywhere he was placed. We apologize for this incident,” he said.

Earlier, Major General Hinsa Siburian who recently assigned as Cenderawasih XVII Regional Military Commander promised will take legal process on two military personnel who opened fire against civilians that caused two people died and some injuered on Friday (28/8/2015). He said he would handle this problem according to the Military law.
“We will take action according to the law, as we have the military criminal law and so on. So there would be a legal process. I also have met the family of dead victims, and said three points, including legal process on military culprits who have harmed the people,” Commander Siburian said through email to Jubi on Sunday (30/8/2015).
