The following is a TOC translation of an article on Detik News. We welcome any clarification if the translation is not accurate.

The Verification Team in the case of the death of David Widjaja, an Indonesian undergraduate who died in Nanyang Technology University (NTU) of Singapore has established that David had been killed, rather than committed suicide.

The leader of the Verification Team, Iwan Piliang, announced this at the press conference held at Restoran Munik, Jl Matraman Raya, Jakarta Timur, on Monday (13 April 2009). David’s father, Hartono Widjaja, and his wife was present, along with his brother William Hartono.

According to Iwan, the team has done a reconstruction of the events surrounding David’s death. From the reconstruction, the team is confident that David’s death was not due to suicide as alleged by NTU. The autopsy that David’s family received indicated 36 gaping wounds, of which 14 were from stab wounds.

“In general, the injury is at the hands. The rest were bruises, including the neck region and internally,” Iwan explained.

The team, along with the family and correspondent, have also visited Singapore. The team had wanted to meet with the NTU officials, but were not entertained. A similar request to meet Professor Chan Kap
Luck, who was reported to have been wounded by David before he died, was also declined.

Meanwhile, the leader of Komnas Anak, Seto Mulyadi, and Bung Tomo of Bambang Sulistomo also voiced their support for a thorough investigation to provide satisfactory closure to this case. According
to Seto Mulyadi, David was an Indonesian asset whose efforts in winning the Mathematics Olympiad should be appreciated by the government.

“The Education and National Ministers should have given the family legal help, including financing for a lawyer. But nobody has bothered so far; POLRI (Indonesian Police), Depdiknas (Education Ministry) and
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono should be actively involved and aiding the family, since it concerns the sovereignty of the country,” he added.

网安局长曾赞扬“称职” 调查总结打脸:职员缺乏素养 “人为疏失本可避免”

新闻评析:独立调查委员会针对去年发生新保集团遭骇事件,呈交400多页的报告,调查结果将此事归咎于人为疏失,指相关资讯科技职员缺乏意识和素养,一些关键人员没有采取有效行动。 根据《联合早报》报导,委员会在报告书中引述负责印证的副总检察长郭民力高级律师: “袭击者鬼祟但不是寂静无声的,网袭还是有迹可循。针对这些迹象,应该采取行动却没有这么做,要么是因为相关职员没意识到袭击正展开,要么是负责职员无动于衷。他们如果采取了适当,袭击者在得逞前就能被制止。” 报告指“虽然我们的网络防御并非坚不可摧,但也不代表我们无法避免被袭击者盗取和渗透数据。” 报告列出五大调查结果: 1)综合保健信息系统公司(IHiS)职员没恰当网袭意识、素养和资源,无法领会他们察觉到的征兆会引起严重保安后果,以及有效应对攻击。 2)一些负责应对IT保安事故的IHiS关键职员,没采取适当、有效或及时行动,造成数据在网袭中被窃或渗透。 3)新保集团的网络和临床信息管理系统,存在数个在网袭前就能补救的漏洞、弱点和错误设置,致使袭击者能成功获取数据。 4)袭击者技术高超、老练,符合“高端持续网络威胁”网袭组织特点。 5)我国网络防御并非坚不可摧,也难以避免高端持续网络威胁袭击,但可避免让袭击者成功获取和渗透数据。 卫生部在去年揭露本地最大的公共医疗机构新保集团遭受历来最大规模网袭,约150万名病人的个人资料被盗,还有约16万人的门诊配药记录被泄露,当中包括总理李显龙与数名部长的记录。 独立调查委员会由前首席地方法官马格纳斯担任主席。…
