Jakarta Post - April 10, 2017
"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)
