Eth­i­cal probe taken against po­lice­man

The Jakarta Post - - ARCHIPELAGO -

BATAM: The Riau Is­land Po­lice are in the process of an eth­i­cal probe against its per­son­nel whose com­ments on Face­book irked the lo­cal TNI.

Riau Is­lands Po­lice spokesman Sr. Comr. Saptono Er­langga said the po­lice would wait to take ac­tion against Comr. Ab­dul­mu­bin Si­a­gian as the eth­i­cal process was still on go­ing.

“On be­half of the Riau Is­lands Po­lice and lead­ers, we apol­o­gize to the In­done­sian Mil­i­tary (TNI) and all peo­ple for the in­ap­pro­pri­ate com­ments made by Ab­dul­mu­bin, who is be­ing probed for dis­ci­plinary and eth­i­cal vi­o­la­tions,” Er­langga said on Fri­day.

Ab­dul­mu­bin made a com­ment on a news link re­lated to the re­cent weapon saga be­tween the TNI and the po­lice on his Face­book ac­count. He al­legedly wrote that TNI per­son­nel as­signed at the bor­der ar­eas are only sleep­ing and eat­ing. The com­ments have since gone vi­ral and deemed an in­sult to the TNI.

The spokesman of Korem Wira Pratama Maj. Ab­dul Si­pahutar said Ab­dul­mu­bin’s com­ments had hurt the feel­ings of the TNI, es­pe­cially the Army, whose sol­diers are as­signed to the ut­most is­lands in the Riau Is­lands prov­ince.

He said the TNI also ex­pected the po­lice to process its mem­ber legally un­der the Elec­tronic In­for­ma­tion and Trans­ac­tions (ITE) Law.

“We are still wait­ing for the le­gal process against him,” Ab­dul said. —
