At around 11.30 WITA, May 22, 2000, with 1 (one) minivan FT and 10 parents/guardian arrived at the Catholic Church of St. Theresia Poso city and met with Sister Pauline, Pastor Bayu, St. Theresia Headmaster Aloysius Laka, Teacher Fin, and Sister Josepha Rumawas with the intention to fetch students from Beteleme. In the conversation with the aforementioned people FT asked if it is true that St. Theresia Church and Dormitory are about to be burned? The Headmaster Aloysius Laka said that it was not correct, because their relationship with the Poso residents is fine. However, FT still asked the Headmaster, Sisters, and Pastor to bring home about 85 schoolchildren who stayed in the St. Theresia dorm. The headmaster suggested to wait until the National Examination to be over (within a day – May 23 is the final day) before bringing those students home. In the church complex of St. Theresia, FT and his group did not meet anyone from any group (alleged Red Faction) other than the Pastor, Sisters, teachers, and students.

Based on Novum, when FT and a group of parents of about 12 people from Beteleme arrived at the St. Theresia Catholic Church complex, Moengko Baru, Poso, there was not found a Red Faction group within the complex that were planning to attack Kayamaya village and Manegko Baru. FT and the parents’ intention was to fetch/bring the students back home to Beteleme. However, because they still had to finish the National Exam, the group spent the night within the church complex. This new evidence proved that it is not true that there was a killing plan hatched from the church complex by FT, DD, MR to attack White Faction (Muslims) in
