National Police, National Armed Forces Guards Palu City from Looters

JAKARTA, NNC -  National Police Headquarters Bureau of Public, Brigadier General Dedi Prasetyo admitted there are still people who continue to loot a number of minimarkets and gas stations in Palu City to get food in areas where aid has not been evenly distributed after the 7.4-Richter Scale earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi on Friday (9/28/2018).

According to Dedi, the National Police and National Armed Forces continue to send aid in the form of equipment, food and medicine to the victims and survivors.

"Aid continues to arrive. The National Police and National Armed Forces have also been guarding the gas stations and minimarkets to avoid people who need food from looting," he said in Jakarta, Monday (10/1). 

According to Dedi, tomorrow morning all stakeholders are planning to conduct funerals for victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Palu en masse because a number of corpses have begun to decompose and it is feared that the decomposition process would cause diseases if not buried immediately.

"Until now all Task Forces are still working to evacuate survivors who are still alive and victims who have died," he said.
