Manokwari, Jubi – The Manokwari Police on Saturday, December 24, 2022, arrested AG, a financier of an illegal gold mining in Waserawi, Masni District, Manokwari Regency, West Papua Province. This was stated by the Head of Manokwari Police, Adj. Sr. Come. Parisian Herman Gultom in Manokwari on Thursday, December 29, 2022.

Gultom said AG was arrested after investigators developed the case of 33 gold miners who were arrested in Waserawi. "We arrested a businessman with the initials AG about five days ago," said Gultom.

He said the police had previously named 33 gold miners in Waserawi as suspects. "We arrested 46 gold miners but after we brought them to the police station, 33 were named as suspects," he said.

He explained that two businessmen were identified as financiers of the illegal gold mines in Waserawi. Manokwari Police have arrested AG, while another financier has not been caught and is still being pursued by the police. "We cannot convey his identity yet as it would hinder our pursuit effort," said Gultom. (*)
