Paskibra sexual harassment
case not over yet: Parent

A parent of a member of the Jakarta-based female Paskibra flag-raising team who had allegedly sexually harassed during training said Friday they were still waiting for a report from a state investigating team, saying the case has not been settled.

Wier Ritonga, one of the student parents, told kompas.com that the case has not been settled as reported by the media.

“It's not true that it has been settled. We are still going to meet with Jakarta's Sports and Youth Agency officials this afternoon over the investigation report,” he said

Previously, a seven-member investigation team denied the female students had been forced to walk naked during an orientation camp in Cibubur, East Jakarta.

“We found they were only naked in the camp’s communal bathroom in their dormitory. They wore towels when walking from the bathroom to their bedrooms,” the internal investigation team leader for the Indonesian Paskibraka Full Corps (PPI), Mohammad Mahdi, told The Jakarta Post.

He shot down rumors that a female supervisor ordered the girls to walk naked.
