Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesia's National Police (Polri) announced that its cybercrime investigators are still conducting probe into the case of the National Data Center (PDN) server disruption that slowed immigration services at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport on June 20.

Speaking here on Monday, Polri Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo stated that the police and National Cyber and Crypto Agency (BSSN) officers continue to gather information and examine the case in greater detail.

"They are striving to find whether the temporary PDN server disruption is related to technical or other issues," the police chief remarked.

Earlier, on Saturday, June 22, Prabowo revealed that the National Police's collaboration with BSSN aimed to assess the security system for PDN.

The Polri chief stated that in the event of a "legal problem" being encountered, the police would handle it while emphasizing that the police's cybercrime division had repeatedly handled such cases.

Meanwhile, on Sunday evening, June 23, the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport's immigration services started to return to normal, according to Communication and Informatics Minister Arie Setiadi.

With the server disruption issue being addressed, travelers looking to clear immigration were no longer stuck in spiraling queues at the airport's international terminal for both the departure and arrival gates, he remarked.

"The immigration services at arrival and departure gates have run smoothly. The automated immigration clearance through autogate can also be used. There are no more long queues as seen on previous days," he stated.

In the government's efforts to handle temporary disruption to the PDN server, the Communication and Informatics Ministry has collaborated with the National Police, BSSN, and state-owned telecommunication company PT Telkom.

As reported earlier, when disruption to the platform was first reported, the Law and Human Rights Ministry, which is tasked with handling immigration services, stated that it had attempted to restore the services by using the PDN backup data in Batam Island.

The ministry noted that the disruption had temporarily impacted services at immigration offices, passport service units, work units, and checkpoints at airports and ports.
