Journalists demand apology from police

Thursday, December 06, 2007

DEPOK: A workgroup of journalists has demanded that Depok Police chief Sr. Comr. Imam Pramukarno apologize for intimidating three of its members at work.

"He should have given them access to information, instead of intimidating or restraining them," group head Mirmo Saptomo said Wednesday.

He said intimidation was contrary to Indonesia's law on the press providing that journalists have a right to seek, gather, and publish information and ideas.

The incident occurred when three journalists were covering a church service at a shopping mall last Friday. An unidentified group of people later forced the service to dismiss, claiming it was unauthorized. A clash was believed imminent at the time police arrived.

Pramukarno ordered photojournalist Muftia Ridwan of Monitor Depok daily and cameraman Parulian Panggabean of Lativi to destroy images they had captured.

When the journalists refused, Pramukarno threatened them with "trouble" if they disseminated the images.

Attempts to reach Pramukarno for comment were not successful. – JP

Kalo diperhatikan, di tempat BreadTalk ada gambar kamera dicoret. Itu termasuk melanggar kebebasan pers kan?
