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.

Minister condemns prison attack in Sleman Law and Human Rights Minister Amir Syamsudin condemned the attack on Cebongan prison in Slaman, Yoyakarta, that killed four detainees at the wee hours on Saturday.

"The attackers are cruel people. They have damaged state facilities, attacked state apparatus and killed people cruelly," the minister said when he visited the prison on Saturday noon.

Around 17 armed men raided the Cebongan prison in the district of Sleman, Yogyakarta, early on Saturday and killed four inmates and wounded several wardens.

"As a minister of law and human rights I expressed my deep condolences to the victims` families and offered my apology for the failure of my personnel to protect them," he said when inspecting the penitentiary after the incident.

He expressed hope that law enforcers, in this case Yogyakarta police, would soon investigate and uncover the assailants who attacked wardens and cruelly killed four detainees. The minister said he had heard complete explanations on the chronology of the incident but he would not give details too far.

"We do not want to cause distortion in the (police) efforts to enforce the law. We only ask law enforcers to be serious and transparent. This is not a simple case as this happens for the first time in Indonesia," the minister said. He said law enforcers must investigate it first and no one may speculate on which group the perpetrators belong to.

"We hope that all sides would hold themselves and would not speculate," he said. The incident occurred following a clash in Hugo`s Cafe in the district days before that led to the death of a member of Army special force Kopassus.

The chief of the Yogyakarta regional police command, Brigadier General Sabar Rahardjo, said the four killed were "those involved in the clash in Hugo`s Cafe several days ago."
