Reportedly crowded, three unknown persons stole the important data in the laptop belonging Indonesian delegation in Seoul, South Korea. Speculation had circulated, they were spies. Later revealed, there are a number of carelessness in the action that indicates the culprit might be not a professional.

Earlier, South Korea's intelligence agency, the National Intelligence Service has strongly denied allegations their agent's involvement in this incident.

Yonhap news agency, Monday, February 21, 2011, explained there are three anomalies that showed hard to believe that theft is a professional spy.

First, intelligence agencies would know that the confidential information of a country will not likely be brought in a laptop. According to Yonhap, there is a habit in intelligence circles that the secret documents tend to be stored in flash disk, rather than on the hard-drive of a laptop.

Second, a spy would know that the staff of the Indonesian delegation not to bring valuable information especially confidential. This is because the staff is only occupy a regular room on the 19th floor, without a guard, and open to anyone who hires. All hotel guests are also free and ply the floor. If the staff that keep state secrets, they must be placed in a hotel room with a tight guard, and the room was supposed to only be accessible by certain people.

Finally, the three thieves were operating simultaneously. This method is not usually carried out by intelligence agents. By walking together, they are so easily detected. Yonhap also said, it is odd that none of the three men were on guard outside the door of the room. All squeezed into the RI delegation's staff room. This, written by Yonhap, is a very fundamental mistake that is almost impossible is what an intelligence agent. (Kd)
