TIME.CO, Jakarta – The Indonesian Police Strategic Studies Institute (Lemkapi) has assessed that the Inspector General of Police Teddy Minahasa they deserve the toughest punishment and dismissal if proven to be involved in drug cases.
“Teddy is expected to be prosecuted immediately and sentenced to the harshest punishment considering he is a member of the National Police who knows the law and there are allegations of using his position for drug offenses,” said the executive director of the Indonesian Police Institute of Strategic Studies (Lemkapi) Dr. Edi Hasibuan in a written statement in Jakarta on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
The actions of Inspector General Teddy Minahasa, he said, have hurt people’s hearts and lowered the dignity of the police. “If there is sufficient evidence of the sale of five kilograms of methamphetamine, they deserve the death penalty,” he said.
Teddy’s actions, he said, are the same as the dealers who destroyed the company. “We hope that the session of the National Police Professional Ethics Commission will be held soon and a decision on Teddy’s dismissal will be made,” he said.
“Difficult to be accepted by the community, there is a police chief whose life is consolidated, his lifestyle is hedonistic, he still plays with drugs. His behavior is certainly very dangerous for the police institute. Not worthy to be a member of the police, “he said.
The removal of Teddy Minahasa from the position of Chief of the East Java Regional Police is considered appropriate
According to this academic from Bhayangkara University, Jakarta, the action of the chief of the national police who firmly canceled the appointment of Teddy as chief of police of East Java deserves public support.
Previously, Polda Metro Jaya had named Teddy Minahasa and 10 other people as suspects in the distribution of shabu-shabu. Jaya Metro Police Narcotics Investigation Director Pol Kombes Mukti Juharsa in Jakarta on Friday said that in addition to Teddy, four police officers were also suspected.
Meanwhile, the other six suspects are civilians, each with the initials HE, AR, L, A, AW and DG. Crystalline methamphetamine is suspected to come from a 40 kg section of crystalline methamphetamine confiscated by police in Bukit Tinggi, West Sumatra, some time ago.
