TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: North Sumatra Police said it has contacted
the local interpol representative a day after an Australian paper
reported six of the 16 criminals hiding in Australia sought by the
Interpol were Indonesian.

Spokesman for North Sumatra Police Senior Commisioner Baharudin Djafar
said North Sumatra police have requested the National Centre
Bureau-Interpol to confirm the report.

One of the fugitives were Adelin Lis who was sentenced to 10 years in

Australian authorities found him in the country. However Brigadier
General Halba Rubis Nugroho, secretary of the NCB-Interpol in Jakarta
said "it would take longer time if he changed nationality."
