Maluku treason cases top agenda
AMBON, Maluku: The Maluku Prosecutor's Office has decided to fast-track the
treason cases against activists of the Maluku Sovereignty Front (FKM).
"Our target is to bring the suspects before the court as soon as possible. But it all
depends on the police investigation into the case," chief of the prosecutor's office,
Masri Djinin, told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.
He said his office had formed a team of 35 prosecutors to handle the treason cases,
which followed days of rioting that left 40 people killed and hundreds other injured.
The office has named 34 alleged members of the FKM, which is linked to the South
Maluku Republic (RMS) separatist group, as suspects. --JP
