Jakarta, 26 Sha’ban 1438/23 May 2017 (MINA) – Commission III of the House of Representatives (DPR) will summon Police Chief Gen Tito Karnavian for a hearing, Tuesday, to evaluate the performance of the National Police (Polri).
The hearing will decide the criteria to determine if its performance had been successful, for instance, with regard to the death of a cadet of the Indonesian Police Academy last week.
“The regular working meeting on the evaluation of the police performance will check the aspects that have to be improved or have to be maintained,” Commission III Deputy Chairman Trimedya Pandjaitan said at the Parliament Building here, Monday.
The commission will inquire about the death of Police Academy cadet Muhammad Adam (21), who died after being beaten up by his seniors last week, he remarked.
According to Pandjaitan, even though one of the perpetrator was the son of a general, the House Commission would not let the case rest. It will be thoroughly investigated after 14 were named as suspects, he added.
“Among the 14 attackers, one was the son of a general,” he affirmed.
He revealed Commission III would specifically pay a visit to the policy academy in Semarang, Central Java.
He predicted that in the next hearing many questions would be posed to the Polri chief, because in the last hearing session there was no meeting with the Polri chief.
“There is no specific agenda but what is much talked about now is the death of the Police Academy student. There will be a lot of questions from Commission III members. There is no guarantee if General Karnavian will be able to attend the meeting until late night, because I heard he will be visiting Iran,” Pandjaitan remarked. (T/RS5/RS1)
