Jakarta leaves fatal shooting of three Indonesians to Putrajaya
KUALA LUMPUR, May 9 — The Indonesian government has left it to the Malaysian authority to investigate and prepare a report pertaining to the incident where three Indonesian nationals were shot dead during a robbery in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan, last March.
Acting Indonesian Ambassador to Malaysia Mulya Wirana said Jakarta would neither interfere nor try to influence the investigation results as they believed that Putrajaya would handle the case in a transparent manner.
“We are not trying to find faults, we just want to get justice done and we believe that Wisma Putra, Attorney-General’s Chambers and the Royal Malaysian Police are open in handling the case.”
He said this after accompanying seven members of Indonesian District Legislative Assembly, led by its Accountability Committee chief Prof Dr Farouk Muhammad, who paid a courtesy call on Senate President Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang here today.
In the incident on March 24, the robbers were shot dead after they attacked the policemen who arrived at the scene after receiving the distress call about the robbery.
Meanwhile, Farouk said the hour-long visit with Abu Zahar was aimed at, among others, getting Malaysia’s co-operation and explanation on the incident, including the reasons for the shots fired by the police.
He said the victim’s family, as well as the Indonesian public and government were hoping that the case would be resolved soon.
“At the same time, we are also hoping that a more secured protection can be provided for Indonesian workers in Malaysia,” he said . —Bernama
