President regrets slow official statement on prison riot President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyoho has expressed his regret at the slow official statement from both central and regional governments in relation to Tanjung Gusta prison riot in Medan, North Sumatra. The rioting in the over-capacity correctional institution on Thursday in Medan left five people dead and caused 240 inmates to escape.

"I wait for respond and reaction time from the central and regional government but it comes late. There is no official statement ten hours after riot occurs," President Yudhoyono said when opening a limited meeting at Halim Perdana Kusuma airport here on Saturday to discuss the handling of the riot, and the skyrocketing price of beef.

According to the president, the official statement was necessary because it could avoid an impression that the government was ignorant. Therefore, soon after arriving from West Nusa Tenggara for a working visit, the head of state immediately gathered a number of related ministers to discuss the matters.

On the occasion the president admired Law and Human Rights Minister Amir Syamsuddin who had decided to leave for Medan to obtain first hand information about the incident.

Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Djoko Suyanto said in a press conference here on Friday that the president had ordered an investigation into the rioting in the Tanjung Gusta prison.

"The President has ordered an in-depth investigation to establish the motive behind the rioting at the Tanjung Gusta correctional facility. National Police chief Gen. Timur Pradopo himself has appointed any of his officers to conduct the in-depth investigation," Djoko Suyanto said.

At a coordination meeting held earlier in the day to discuss the handling of the rioting case, the government decided to remove some of inmates to the closest prisons, he said.

"Because the prison is overcapacity, Deputy Minister of Law and Human Rights Denny Indrayana has been asked to remove some of the inmates to other correctional facilities," he said.

Asylum seekers in Medan wish to be sent to Australia Asylum seekers including the Rohingyas from Myanmar now being accommodated in Medan, North Sumatra, have asked for their dispatch to Australia or New Zealand.One of the Rohingya refugees, M Habib (32), said here on Tuesday that he did not care where he would be taken to as the most important thing was leaving the present temporary shelter.

"For us the important thing is leaving the present shelter," he said. He said it would all be up to the UNHCR that has so far taken care of them. He said the Rohingyas were not interested in money but clear status and countries that are willing to assure their security.

Habib said they have so far been declared as refugees but no country has been willing to accept them after leaving conflict in their home country. "It is impossible to return to Myanmar as his mother, brothers and sisters and other families have all left following the clash. Relatives have also died," he said.

Tens of Rohingyas recently visited the UNHCR office on Jalan Babura Lama in Medan to demand for their immediate dispatch to Australia or other countries.

Another Rohingya refugee, Zaid Husein (28) said he could not stop wondering why the UNHCR office in Medan did not care about the Myanmarese refugees living in the shelter on Pasar II, Jaln Jamin Gintin, numbering in the hundred who have been living there for four years.

Refugees from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Iran who have stayed in the shelter for more than a year meanwhile have all asked to be sent to Australia and New Zealand. "The UNHCR`s inaction was regrettable as the Rohingyas have long been staying in Medan and hoping to be sent to a foreign country," Husein said.
