Jakarta Post - April 10, 2017

Tanggerang Police have conducted an investigation into an officer who slapped a female labor protester in Tanggerang city, Banten province, for holding a demonstration in the middle of a car-free day on the weekend, when other events are prohibited.

"The police's internal affairs division is investigating the incident. We apologize for the inconvenience," said Sr. Cmmr. Harry Kurniawan, as quoted by kompas.com on Monday.

The incident happened when police tried to disperse a group of people who were holding a protest during the car-free day event. The female shoe factory workers refused to leave.

As seen in a video that went viral, the precinct's chief of intelligence and security agency, Adj. Sr. Cmmr. Danu Wiyata, slapped a protester during a heated argument with her. (kkk/dan)
