Body of slain Intan Jaya pastor to be autopsied, says fact-finding team

first_imgThe members of a government-sanctioned joint fact-finding team (TGPF) for the Intan Jaya shooting case have convinced the wife and family members of slain Papuan pastor Yeremia Zanambani to allow the body to be autopsied as part of an ongoing investigation.Benny Mamoto of the National Police Commission (Kompolnas), who leads the field investigation unit, said the autopsy agreement was made during an initial investigation to gather information from Yeremia’s family.“Family consent for the autopsy was given by Yeremia’s family members, so it is only a matter of following up by the investigators,” Benny told The Jakarta Post on Monday. Four members of Yeremia’s family signed a police interrogation report (BAP) affirming their statements as witnesses after previously refusing to sign one, Benny said.He said the statements of the family members were necessary for the initial investigation because they were the last people who were with the victim before he was killed.“The witnesses were the ones who were at the scene of the crime, so the reports are about what they saw, what they experienced, what they heard from the victim and other things related to the victim,” Benny said.Read also: Papuans doubtful over govt team to probe shootings At first, the family members declined to sign the BAP, he said. He believed the reluctance was because of the language barrier, limited knowledge of the law and input from other parties.“We invited religious and community leaders to convince them and explain the legal process and the importance of witness testimony. Their interpreter also signed one, so they felt more comfortable and confident,” Benny added.The joint team has examined the scene of the shooting, the cemetery and the church and has questioned the victim’s family and a number of other witnesses.Benny said the team would continue investigating the shooting despite experiencing an attack reportedly launched by the West Papua National Liberation Army (TPNPB) on Friday.“We will analyze and evaluate all the information, and we will report it to the Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister [Mahfud MD] as the person in charge,” added Benny.He acknowledged that the difficult terrain and limited transportation and communication access were obstacles for the team.In addition to Yeremia’s death, which occurred on Sept. 19, the team will investigate other deaths that took place around the same time in September, including the shooting of a civilian named Badawi and of two TNI soldiers, Chief. Sgt. Sahlan and First Pvt. Dwi Akbar.The team has been given two weeks, starting from the formation of the group on Oct. 1, to report the results of the investigation to the government.Topics :last_img read more

Di Canio warns of hard work ahead

He added: “We have to integrate the new players into the team, continue to build and develop our squad and complete our pre-season training. “There is a lot of hard work but we are ready for it.” Nineteen-year-old IFK Gothenburg midfielder Karlsson is one of a series of young players to have been recruited by Di Canio so far, with Altrincham striker Duncan Watmore and Le Havre’s El-Hadji Ba having also joined the club’s development squad. In addition, senior men Valentin Roberge, Cabral and Modibo Diakite will become Black Cats when their respective deals at Maritimo, Basle and Lazio expire at the end of the month. center_img The Italian is currently in the process of overhauling the squad which only just survived in the top flight last season, having added teenage Swedish winger David Moberg Karlsson to the mix last night. However, while revealing his excitement after seeing the fixtures for his first full campaign unveiled, he admitted there is much to be done before the Black Cats kick off at home to Fulham on August 17. Di Canio told the club’s official website, www.safc.com: “I’m very excited and of course it’s fantastic to start at home in front of our own fans. But there is a lot of work to do between now and Fulham. There are many steps.” last_img read more

Powered by Firework On Thursday, wrestler Divya Kakran bagged a gold medal at the Asian Wrestling Championships against junior world champion Naruha Matsuyuki and became the second Indian woman to do so with a dominating performance. The competition (arranged in a round robin format) saw Divya win all of her bouts in the 68kg category; while the other participants from the country also enjoyed a wonderful outing with Sarita Mor (59kg), Pinki (55kg) and Nirmala Devi (50kg) assuring themselves with silver by reaching finals in respective categories. Advertisement Picture Credit: Getty ImagesDue to the absence of top Chinese and Japanese wrestlers, Divya who won the bronze medal in the Asian Games, knocked out Kazakhstan’s Albina Kairgelinova and Mongolia’s Delgermaa Enkkhsaikhan in the primary two rounds. In the third round, she faced Azoda Esbergenova of Uzbekistan, seeing her off only in just 27 seconds.The final against the Japanese junior world champion started off in style as she led 4-0 in no time thanks to some strong left-leg attacks. Even though the Japanese made it 4-4 in the second period, Divya pinned her opponent and celebrated her victory with a fall.Advertisement “I had to win by fall to get five points from all my bouts because the Japanese was winning all her bouts by big margins, so I took risk for big wins. My coach had said that I don’t have to go for big throws all the time but I went for it” she said in the post-match interview.“I took risk and it paid off by God’s grace. “I was told that If I get trapped, I have to play safe. I found a way to come out. That girl is good in single leg attacks and it is my weak area. So I became more attacking,” she added.Advertisement When asked whether the absence of the Chinese wrestler helped, she quickly replied,“Yes, it did benefit. But if you have a 5-wrestler group it becomes even tougher, you have fight everyone and win big. I won 4 bouts within 2 hours. It was tough on body but good thing is I have improved on my range, I made all kinds of attacks, Irani, Kheme, single-led, double leg attacks. I have spent hours on practicing these moves. Now I want to qualify for the Olympics and that too with a gold.”Back in 2018 Navjot Kaur became the first Indian woman to win top the podium at the Asian Championships in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan in the 65kg category. You may also like:Asian Games: 20-year old Divya Kakran wins India another medal in wrestlingKakran Disses Kejriwal: Asian Games medalist blasts Delhi Government for lack of support Advertisementlast_img read more
