Indonesia urges severe punishment for Malaysian rapist policemen


16:38, November 12, 2012

JAKARTA, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia has asked Malaysia to give the heaviest punishment to three of its policemen who allegedly raped an Indonesian migrant worker, media reported here on Monday.

Chief of the National Agency for Placement and Protection of Indonesian Workers Overseas, Moh Jumhur Hidayat, was quoted by Antara news agency as saying that his agency has coordinated with the Indonesian embassy in Kuala Lumpur to ask for maximum penalty for the three Malaysian police.

A 25-year-old Indonesian migrant worker identified only as SM from Batang, Central Java, claimed she was raped by three Malaysian police at Perai police office, Pulau Penang on Friday, Nov. 9.

SM was netted in a sweeping and taken to the police station because she was accused of having no proper document. She could only produce the photocopy of her passport.

"The police refused to accept it because it was only a photocopy and I was then taken to the police station," she said.

She was raped by three policemen before she was released.

The chief of the agency said that Malaysia needed to provide re- education for its police force because the number of those who committed barbarous acts against Indonesian migrant workers was increasing.

"The Indonesian ambassador to Malaysia has asked Malaysia to take the right and fair legal steps which respect the feeling of the Indonesian people who are very concerned over the rape incident," Jumhur added.
