A riot that broke out at Manado Penitentiary in North Sulawesi over the weekend has killed one inmate, while another has been hospitalized after being shot by a rubber bullet and 20 alleged provocateurs have been arrested.The riot broke out on Saturday afternoon, allegedly triggered by visitation restrictions and early release of inmates amid COVID-19 concerns, culminating in a massive fire that razed parts of the prison complex.The head of the Law and Human Rights Ministry office in North Sulawesi, Lumaksono, said on Monday that he had got confirmation from the hospital that the cause of death of the inmate was not COVID-19. “When the riot broke out, and the authorities were taking control of the situation, he was shocked. His blood pressure level showed 190,” he said on Monday evening in Manado.Lumaksono added that the inmate was also having difficulty breathing. “It is the temporary result of his autopsy. We’ll figure out the official result 14 days later,” he said.The inmate had been buried at a cemetery in Telling Atas subdistrict, Manado, by the Catholic Church Union.Earlier reports said the inmate was Filipino, but Lumaksono confirmed on Monday that the inmate was an Indonesian citizen from Sangihe – a regency in North Sulawesi.
