Police refuse to cooperate in torture death probe
Police fail to supply autopsy reports to rights investigators
January 27, 2012
Ali Ahmad, the head of the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) in West Sumatra, said it was unlikely police would meet today’s deadline.
“The police are refusing to provide them because there was no official letter from Komnas Ham,” Ali told the Jakarta Globe on Friday.
Earlier this week, Komnas Ham told the media that they were waiting for documents from the police to complete their investigation on the death of 14-year old Faisal and 17-year old Budri M Zen.
Faisal was arrested on Dec. 21 for stealing from a charity box at a mosque. Busri was arrested five days later for motorcycle theft. A week later the police told their family that the boys had committed suicide by hanging.
