Foreign Residents Affirm Imanda Not Australian

Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said the Australian government had confirmed that Amalia Imanda name is not listed as an Australian citizen.

"This morning I have received confirmation from the Australian government that the name does not exist as a list of Australian citizens," Marty said after meeting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, on Friday.

Marty said it was a maze of related news concerning the death of a citizen named Imanda Amalia caused unrest in Egypt.

Besides Australia, Marty also asserted, UN Aid for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) also have confirmed that the name was not listed as an employee of that organization.

Marty did not want to say much about it. When asked whether information on the death of citizens is only falsehood, Marty just smiled.

"We take the silver lining," said Marty Short.

Previously it was rumored that Imanda died while on duty representing the UNRWA. There was also news that Imanda is an Australian citizen of Indonesian descent.

UNRWA has been confirmed that Imanda Amalia (28) who reportedly died in Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday (2 / 2), not the staff of such institutions as reported one of the media in Indonesia.

"It's not. He is not one of his staff of UNRWA," UNRWA spokesman Christopher Gunness in correspondence with AFP from Jakarta, Thursday (3 / 2).

Gunness has repeatedly asserted, "Nothing I can say anymore than that he is not working for UNRWA."

The same thing also submitted a spokesman for UNRWA in Jerusalem, Sami Mshasha, who said there was no record of Imanda as one of the employees of the UN humanitarian agencies.

"Based on the results of our search and research, Imanda never listed as an employee of UNRWA," she said.
