“The flash floods also destroyed 500 homes and forced us to relocate hundreds of people. We also organized field kitchens in displaced persons at nearly every displaced persons camp.”

The evacuees included hundreds of people from two villages at the foothills of the Mount Ile Lewotolok volcano, 11 of whom were killed in a lava flood from the volcano last Sunday.

Two Indonesian Policemen Named as Suspects in the Killing of FPI Members

The Indonesian National Police has named two policemen as suspects in the ‘unlawful killing’ of four members of the Islamic Defenders Front or FPI at a toll road 50 kilometers outside Jakarta in December 2020, weeks before the government outlawed the organization.

“The Criminal Investigation Division [Bareskrim] has named the two policemen as suspects, after investigations at the crime scene determined that they killed the FPI men in their custody,” said Indonesian National Police spokesman Brigadier General Rusdi Hartono on Tuesday.

“Originally we named three policemen as suspects in the killing. But one of them, who was identified as EPZ, died in an accident at South Tangerang last January.” The police charged the policemen with committing murder or causing their deaths through mistreatment.
Investigators reached this conclusion, after a joint police and National Commission of Human Rights [Komnas HAM] investigation determined that the deaths of four out of six FPI members following their standoff with the police at the toll road was a human rights violation.

The police’s killing of the FPI members came before the controversial organization’s disbandment by the government at the end of 2020 for running counter to the state ideology Pancasila.

It also came before the police arrested and tried FPI head Rizieq Shihab for multiple violation of health protocols, following his return from exile in Saudi Arabia in November 2020
