Army chief defends shooting of East Timorese

by 英文中國郵報

JAKARTA -- Indonesian army chief General Djoko Santoso on Sunday defended the shooting of a suspected smuggler who crossed from East Timor, saying soldiers had followed proper procedures before opening fire. Soldiers manning the border between Indonesian West Timor and East Timor shot at four men believed to be members of a smuggling gang in the early hours of Friday, the military said. One was killed and the other three escaped.

An investigation showed that the four were East Timorese nationals who had illegally crossed into Indonesian territory. "The shooting at the border was made after following the prevailing procedures," Santoso told journalists on the sidelines of a ceremony at the Jakarta military headquarters.
