Labora Sitorus

Public confidence in law enforcement took another dive this week after it was revealed that Labora Sitorus – a low ranking Papuan cop with US$119 million in bank accounts and sentenced to 15 years for illegal logging and hoarding fuel – had left the Sorong jail for medical treatment in March 2014 and not returned. Despite being put on the list of most wanted fugitives, it turned out he had been living openly at his mansion in Sorong for the last year and now insists he holds a release letter from the Sorong warden and is threatening to make public claims that he shared his ill gotten wealth with senior police officers in Papua and Jakarta.
