REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, MEDAN -- Disaster Victim Identification Team (DVI) of National Police has added the forensic expert to the victims identification process of the Hercules C-130 plane crash in Medan, on Tuesday, June 30. The addition was expected could be completed more quickly in the identification process of the victim bodies.

"Today we added the forensic experts become 15 persons. There are 15 tables for identification," said DVI Deputy Chairman of the North Sumatra, Police Commissioner Didiet at Adam Malik Hospital, Medan, on Friday, July 3.

In addition to forensic experts, said Didiet, the team also added the dentist or forensic odontology, and fingerprint experts. DVI teams also bring two DNA experts. It was to anticipate when bodies could not be identified through fingerprints and tooth structure. All three were the primary identification and should prove minimum one of them.

According to Didiet, corpse conditions in the fourth day were unrecognizable visually. However, he said, the DVI team could still do the primary identification using fingerprints or dental records to bodies whose condition was still intact despite the decaying and swelling.

So far, there were remaining 49 bags of unidentified bodies. Earlier, 96 bodies had been identified until the third day. All the bodies were expected successfully identified in this fourth day.
