Protesters throw stones, bottles at police officers

BINTANGNEWS.com – Protesters started throwing stones, bottles and mineral water at police officers after representatives of the protesters left their State Palace meeting with Vice President Jusuf Kalla.
The protesters were reportedly angry that their representatives could not meet President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo. They tried to break the police barricade and enter the State Palace.
It occurred shortly after 6 p.m., the hour at which protesters on Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat had been instructed to disperse.
Demonstrators demanded the prosecution of Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja "Ahok" Purnama for alleged blasphemy.
Kalla insisted that the case would be strictly followed up according to the law.
“The police will firmly process the Ahok case without delay,” Kalla told reporters after meeting with the representatives at the Vice President's office.***
