The Jakarta Police are investigating an adultery allegation against police officers.

“One of our officers reported the allegation on Tuesday. The case has been under investigation by the provost [division],” police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono told kompas.com on Wednesday.

Investigative officers, Argo added, would question the police and others over the case before the preliminary trial.

“If an act of adultery is proven to have taken place, the trial will determine the kind of crime and [...] punishment that will be charged on them,” he said.

The case reportedly was reported by an officer of the Jakarta Police security intelligence unit (Intelkam).

According to the officer, his wife, a police officer at the National Police crimes unit, had committed adultery with another officer at the National Police special crimes detection unit (Tipiter) at a hotel in North Jakarta.

The officer that reported the case told the police that his wife had admitted to committing the alleged act. (vla)
