JAKARTA - Dozens of members of the GMBI (Indonesian Bottom Society Movement) mass organization were arrested for the vandalism of the West Java (Jabar) Police Headquarters fence during a demonstration, Thursday, January 27.
In addition to destroying the fence, one of the protesters during the action also occupied the statue of 'Maung' which is inside the West Java Police Headquarters, Jalan Soekarno Hatta, Bandung City.
Dozens of people gathered at the West Java Police Headquarters. One by one GMBI members were seen squatting without wearing clothes.
Based on the information gathered, the GMBI mass moved to the West Java Police Headquarters since noon and gathered in front of the West Java Police Headquarters. They held a demonstration regarding the development of the case of a beating that occurred at Interchange, Karawang which resulted in the loss of life of one of its members, in November 2021.
The demonstration was chaotic, the police officers guarding in front and behind the door of the Regional Police Headquarters were unable to contain the crowd. As a result, the West Java Police Headquarters fence collapsed.
The video also shows a line of officers being pelted with stones and bottles by the mob. But the officers on guard tried not to get ignited, and avoided clashes.
The police are still collecting data on GMBI members who are being held at the West Java Regional Police Headquarters.
