Two Jakarta International School staffers held for assaulting child – The Jakarta Post

Two Jakarta International School (JIS) teaching staff were declared suspects on Thursday for the alleged sexual assault of a kindergarten pupil.

Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto confirmed that Canadian Neil Bantleman and Indonesian Ferdinand Tjiong were now suspects after analyzing the result of a medical examination from the hospital and the case reconstruction and questioning them.

“Yes [they were all named as suspects] after a case expose on Thursday morning. The evidence we gathered was the victim’s medical examinations as well as testimonies from witnesses and the victim himself,” Rikwanto told The Jakarta Post via text message on Thursday.

However, Rikwanto did not specify which case Bantleman and Ferdinand were named suspects in.
