Thursday, 5 February 2009 Kompas

Mataram ­ Thursday ­ An Indonesian Navy personnel who uses the alias Agil was reported to the Mataram police station on Thursday, suspected of being involved in a case of sexual assault and looting of electronic goods from a boarding house in Batu Ringgit, Sekarbela district, Mataram, NTB.

The soldier was reported by An (24) a close friend of the victim, Bunga (not her real name) a high school junior at a private school in Mataram.

The Mataram police station said that the case of suspected sexual assault and looting is currently being investigated by the local police station together with the Naval Military Police (Pomal).

“The Navy soldier and the student are still being questioned, as well as a few witnesses. Once it is completed it will be sent to Pomal for continued action because a naval personnel is involved” said an official from the Mataram police.

A Mataram police official Dadi Cahyo said that based on the testimony of the victim and witnesses the chronology of the suspected sexual assault starts from the naval personnel climbing into the boarding house, entering the victim’s room and then threatening the victim with a knife so that she would have sexual relations with him.

The boarding house room was rented by a friend of the victim’s, “So,” who was working that night at his business on Airlangga St. in Mataram. “From the testimony collected from the investigation, there was a case of sexual assault that took place under the threat of a knife and the perpetrator used a piece of cloth to cover his face and when he was done the perpetrator reportedly stole electronic equipment from the room and took a taxi. He stored the stolen electronics at his girlfriend’s house” he said.

The navy acknowledges that there was a report of looting and sexual assault but that it is still “in the process of investigation at the Mataram police station and after it is given to Pomal of course it will be explained in a transparent matter” said a naval official.
