REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- A total of 155 terrorist detainees have turned themselves to the Police officers on Thursday, following two days of deadly riot at the National Police's Mobile Brigade Headquarters (Mako Brimob) in Depok, West Java.

"The first group of 145 had surrendered first without any conditions, and the other 10 had chosen to stay inside (the detention center)," Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto said in a press conference at the headquarters, Thursday.

Hence, in accordance with the standard operational procedure, the police officers delivered an ultimatum to the other 10 convicted terrorist inmates. "We (the security officers) would never negotiate with the terrorists," the minister remarked.

During the press conference, the minister stated that the Indonesian government is committed to strengthen measures on counter-terrorism. "This deadly incident is a momentum for us (the security officers) to increase actions on battling against radicalism and terrorism in the country. For now, let's deliver our pray for the five police officers that had been tortured and killed by the terrorist detainees," he noted.

A clash broke out at the headquarters after some terror convicts had quarreled with the detention guards over a food package. In accordance with the police's standard operation, all food for the inmates should be checked and sterilized, because it must not contained forbidden materials.
