The family of the victim and the Djadajat Marunda Maritime Academy (AMD) ask the police to investigate the death of David Richard (18). The student of Grade I died on 25th February 2013, allegedly after being tortured by his senior two months before. According to OC Kaligis, the legal attorney of David’s family, the suspicion began to arise when David went to Batam for vacation at the end of December 2012. There was an obvious physical change at that time. His jaws changed position and there was a scar under his lower lip. However, when his uncle asked, David told nothing.
Separately, the Director of AMD, M Thamrin AR, in Marunda, Cilincing District, North Jakarta, states that they are ready to open door for law enforcement apparatus to thoroughly investigate this case. He hopes that the torturer will be found and similar incidents won’t be repeated in the future.
