JAKARTA, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Indonesian national police on Thursday denied the country's peace keeping force's involvement in attempted weapon smuggling in Sudan last month, a police spokesman said here on Thursday.
National police spokesman Inspector Gen. Boy Rafly Amar said the weapon seized in Al Fashir airport in Darfur did not belong to the Indonesian personnel.
"The weapons are clearly not possessed by formed police unit," Rafly said at the police headquarters.
Currently, a team giving legal aids to the unit has been cooperating with the government of Sudan to uncover the case, he added.
The spokesman revealed that the weapons were allegedly owned by a group of people after they stole them.
"The latest information is that the weapons are obtained from robbery," he said.
A personnel from Indonesia grouped in the United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) were detained on Jan. 20 in Al Fashir airport in Darfur for accusation of smuggling weapons, according to media reports.
Indonesian foreign ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir said on Thursday that a joint investigation team has not found any evidence about the implication of the Indonesian personnel in the smuggling activity.
The government would send home the personnel from Darfur, he said.
