He said that until now his party had not received a complete report from the Intan Jaya Police regarding the shooting incident due to problems with telecommunications lines.

Regarding the possibility of the shooting victims being evacuated to Nabire, Faizal said that up to now it was not because there were no longer any aircraft operating. “It is possible that on Tuesday (31/1) the victim will be evacuated to Nabire to receive further medical treatment,” he said.
