SUMEDANG - The Indonesian Ministry of Home Affairs (Ministry of Home Affairs) took the initiative to help identify victims of the crash of Lion Air.
Indonesian Minister of Home Affairs (Minister of Home Affairs) Tjahyo Kumolo said his party had formed a special team deployed to directly assist the Indonesian Police Headquarters Inafis to identify the fingerprints of the victims of the aircraft.
"We sent down a special team to help the Indonesian Police Headquarters Inafis to identify the fingerprints of the victims," he told reporters on the IPDN campus on Friday (11/2/2018).
Tjahyo said that so far the prospective passengers, especially those who bought airplane tickets, never filled their identity completely, so that when an accident occurred, there were often obstacles in finding the victim's identity.
"People who buy airplane tickets often do not include complete data. For example, only the name Cahyo is included. The name can be found in several hundred data," he said.
Tjahyo added that the team will work 24 hours a day with the division of labor in shifts. This was done so that the identity of the victims of Lion Air could be immediately known.
"With known fingerprints, the data is clear, whose full name, date and place of birth where. This can facilitate identification of victims," ??he concluded. Jo
