Kepala Detasemen Markas (Denma) AKBP Pamudji telah tewas ditembak di Polda Metro Jaya kemarin malam. Diduga, korban ditembak oleh anak buahnya sendiri.

Menanggapi kasus ini, anggota Komisi III DPR Harry Witjaksono juga meminta agar Wakapolri Komjen Pol Badrodin Haiti turun untuk menyelesaikan kasus ini. Sebab, masalah internal kepolisian ada di tangan Wakapolri.

"Tugas Wakapolri menegakkan disiplin Polri, terlepas masalahnya apapun itu, tembak-tembakan polisi itu juga bisa membuat disiplin runtuh," ujar Harry di Gedung DPR, Jakarta, Rabu (19/3).

Dia mendesak kasus ini harus segera diselesaikan dengan tuntas. Menurut dia, akibat kasus ini akan menimbulkan ketidakpercayaan masyarakat kepada institusi Polri.

"Saya juga minta Badrodin untuk menegakkan disiplin setegak-tegaknya," tegas dia.

Untuk dapat menghindari hal serupa terjadi kembali, Harry juga berpendapat, agar Polri terus memeriksa psikologis para anggotanya. Khususnya bagi mereka yang dipercaya memegang senjata api. "Secara berkala harus diperiksa psikologisnya. Masih layak engak megang pistol," tegas dia.

Dia juga berpesan kepada Kapolda Metro Jaya baru, Irjen Dwi Prayitno agar mengawasi anak buahnya. Sebab hal ini dapat mencoreng citra kepolisian.

"Harus menegakkan disiplin pada anggota, malu di depan masyarakat. Gimana kita mau memberikan rasa aman kepada masyarakat kalau antar polisi saling tembak," ujarnya.

Kasus tembak-tembakan polisi bikin disiplin runtuh

BEIJING (AP) — The head of Taiwan's Nationalists reaffirmed the party's support for eventual unification with the mainland when he met Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of continuing rapprochement between the former bitter enemies.

Nationalist Party Chairman Eric Chu, a likely presidential candidate next year, also affirmed Taiwan's desire to join the proposed Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank during the meeting in Beijing. China claims Taiwan as its own territory and doesn't want the island to join using a name that might imply it is an independent country.

Chu's comments during his meeting with Xi were carried live on Hong Kong-based broadcaster Phoenix Television.

The Nationalists were driven to Taiwan by Mao Zedong's Communists during the Chinese civil war in 1949, leading to decades of hostility between the sides. Chu, who took over as party leader in January, is the third Nationalist chairman to visit the mainland and the first since 2009.

Relations between the communist-ruled mainland and the self-governing democratic island of Taiwan began to warm in the 1990s, partly out of their common opposition to Taiwan's formal independence from China, a position advocated by the island's Democratic Progressive Party.

Despite increasingly close economic ties, the prospect of political unification has grown increasingly unpopular on Taiwan, especially with younger voters. Opposition to the Nationalists' pro-China policies was seen as a driver behind heavy local electoral defeats for the party last year that led to Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou resigning as party chairman.
