Officers blamed for escape of two inmates in East Jakarta
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta Police spokesman Comr. Argo Yuwono said that three police officers were to blame for the escape of two inmates from the East Jakarta Police headquarters in Jatinegara on Friday.
“There are indications [of officer negligence]. The officers have been placed in a special station because their negligence allowed the inmates to escape after breaking the cell’s wall,” Argo said on Monday as reported by kompas.com.
“Three officers were on duty [when the inmates escaped],” he said.
Argo said that the Jakarta Police internal affairs division (Propam) was currently investigating the incident.
The inmates, identified as AK, 19, and JM, 36, escaped by breaking the wall of their jail cell with a hammer and nails given to them by a visitor, Argo added. The inmates used a rope to get out of the jail cell, which was on the fifth floor, at around 6 p.m.
He said that the officers had searched the nearby area and found AK hiding behind the police headquarters. The police found JM in a nearby area not long after. (ami)
