Police Name KNPB Militants as Suspects in the Burning of the Jayapura Ministry of Religion Office

Jayapura – Jayapura Police revealed the motive for burning down a number of government buildings in the Jayapura Regency Regent’s complex, after arresting AR alias Arkis, a 22 year old man who works as a student.

In his press statement, Jayapura Police Chief AKBP Fredrickus W.A Maclarimboen said Arki carried out his action because he was hurt by government policy.

“In his investigation, the suspect did not say whether he was hurt by the central, provincial or district government,” he explained.

It is known that Arki is a student at a university who has been registered since 2018. Arki also always changes his residence, making investigations difficult.

“Arki admitted that he committed the arson act alone. “However, this does not rule out the possibility of involvement of other people who are still under investigation,” he said.

By the police, Arki was charged with Article 187 paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code in conjunction with Article 64 paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code, the suspect could face a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison.
