New sexual assault suspect, victims at international school in Jakarta

The Jakarta Post/ANN | Friday, May 23, 2014

Several students have reported a staff member of the Jakarta International School (JIS) to the National Police Criminal Investigation Directorate (Bareskrim) for sexual assault.

The victims' lawyer, O.C. Kaligis, said on Thursday that the suspect was not an outsourced janitor from PT ISS like those arrested in the first JIS sexual assault case, but was "higher up in the school".

"There is a school staff member in a higher position who had been raping the victims," Kaligis said. "The new victims are all Caucasians," he revealed. However, Kaligis refused to disclose the precise number of new victims or the position of the suspect in the school.

According to Kaligis, the National Police began an investigation into the new case several days ago, but that it would be taken over by the Jakarta Police and merged with its investigation into the initial JIS rape case of a 6-year-old kindergarten pupil reported last month.
