Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Police Chief, Inspector General Boy Rafli Amar stated that the decision to stop the legal process of Tolikara election criminal case which allegedly involves the Chairman of DPD DemocratParty Papua, Lukas Enembe (LE) by the Integrated Law Enforcement Center (Gakkumdu) must be accepted.
“Yes, it is a mechanism agreed in Gakkumdu, so whatever the outcome Gakkumdu is determining party,” said Boy Rafli in Papua Police headquarter, Friday (July 14).
According to him, the police handed over (the case) completely to Gakkumdu center which consisting of police, prosecutors and election watch body (bawaslu). And the element of police who are in Gakkumdu center has done its job.
“Police investigators are responsible for conducting an investigation, the criminal act of election is against the law and if any process of meeting Gakkumdu center has been decided is a result that must be respected. Mechanism to decide is through meeting, to determine the violation or crime of election is also through the meeting,” he said.
And, according to him, the decision of making LE as a suspect is not a recent decision.
On July 7, 2017 it has done the process of reporting law. Investigation process of the report came in May 28, 2017 and Gakkumdu had the time to determine administrative or criminal violations. It’s just that the news had just been spread out earlier this week.
However, he added it does not mean there is no coordination between the prosecutor and the police in the case. (*)
