Banten Police Chief Loses Post in Wake of Religious Violence
Farouk Arnaz | February 11, 2011

Indonesian Police have confirmed that the head of Banten Police has been removed from his post following the deadly attack on members of the Ahmadiyah community in Cikeusik.

National Police deputy spokesman Brig. Gen. Ketut Untung Yoga said Banten Police chief Brig. Gen. Agus Kusnadi and his subordinates, intelligence head Chief Comr. Aditiawarman, and the head of Pandeglang Police, Adjutant Chief Comr. Alex Fauzi Rasyad.

The trio, accused of breaching operating standards by failing to anticipate the attacks, had previously been questioned by Comr. Gen. Nanan Soekarna, the police’s Internal Affairs head.

It remains unclear whether the head of Cikeusik Police, Adj. Comr. M. Supur has also been removed from his post.

Police, meanwhile, have so far detained 24 suspects in relation to the anti-Christian violence in Tamanggung, Central Java.
