The Indonesian Police Chief General Tito Karnavian (center) and Indonesian Military Chief Air Chief Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto (second right) made a statement after a security briefing at the National Monument (Monas), Jakarta on Thursday (13/6/2019).

Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Air Chief Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto stressed the solidity of the TNI and the National Police (Polri) in handling the case of 21-22 May riot.

The alleged involvement of a number of retired officers, according to Hadi, would not disturb the cooperation built between TNI and Polri.

“As it is known, the solidity of the TNI-Polri continues to run well,” Tjahjanto said in Jakarta on Thursday (13/6/2019).

He noted that the retired military officers were no longer part of TNI, as they have returned to being civilians upon completing their military duties.

However, according to Tjahjanto, he maintains communications with retired officers.

Previously, the police named former army general Kivlan Zen as a suspect in a treason case, in regards to the “people power” rallies held after the elections.

Zen, along with Major General (ret) Soenarko, were also suspects in attempted murder cases involving four high ranking national figures, including Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan and Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Minister Wiranto.

“We continue to communicate with him (Zen) to maintain the unity (of TNI-Polri), but TNI does not interfere in the legal process, because it is in the civilian domain,” Tjahjanto noted.

Meanwhile, the Indonesian Police Chief General Tito Karnavian said the importance of building solidity with the TNI is to ensure the unity of the republic, despite some discomfort.

However, based on the principles of equality before the law, every case against retired military or police officers must be addressed based upon the law, he added.

Kivlan Zen is being detained for 20 days in the POM Jaya Detention Center, Guntur, South Jakarta.

As for Soenarko, he is suspected of smuggling illegal firearms and is being held at the National Police Headquarters in the Guntur Military Detention House.

Karnavian said that Zen and Soenarko were being investigated in different cases. He speculated that Soenarko’s case can still be resolved by deliberation.

“Somewhat different from the case of Mr. Soenarko, this weapon was clearly owned by him when he was in Aceh, then taken to Jakarta. As in the case of Mr. Kivlan Zen, the grade is different, so I think there can still be room for communication in this problem of Mr. Soenarko,” Karnavian said. (ric)

Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law, and Security Wiranto has made assurance that the police will be fair and transparent in conducting legal proceedings in connection with the riots erupting on May 21-22, 2019.

“Our brothers also continue to face various legal issues related to the election that arise. The legal process over the riots that broke out on May 21-22 after the announcement of election results, of course, will run fairly, honestly, and transparently,” Wiranto emphasized while leading the ministerial meeting at the office of the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs here Monday (10/6/2019).

Prasetyo, TNI Commander Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, National Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian, Head of BIN General Budi Gunawan, and Head of the National Terrorism Prevention Agency (BNPT) Suhardi Alius were present at the meeting.

He urged the police to be as clear as possible in its approach to deliver the result of the investigation into the May-22 action to the public.

This is deemed necessary, particularly when speculations are currently rife among members in the community over several legal issues that are being processed, especially in connection with the arrest of key figures, who can immediately be neutralized.

“Yes, the right way forward is to inform the public as lucidly as possible about the legal process that took place. The process related to the investigation, making the police investigation report, and so forth should not create new speculations. Hence, the community should be informed clearly about how we consistently enforce applicable laws in Indonesia. This is crucial, ” Wiranto elaborated.

The minister revealed that currently, his side has prioritized maintaining political stability. Furthermore, the session to resolve disputes over the 2019 general election at the Constitutional Court is drawing closer.

“We are optimistic that the contestants will stay consistent and be able to accept the Constitutional Court’s decision, as it will prevent the problem from getting drawn out. Moreover, stability is guaranteed,” he added. (ant)

Head of the Police Public Relations Division, Inspector General Mohammad Iqbal, told a press conference on Monday (27/5/2019) at the Coordinating Ministry for Politics, Law and Security in Jakarta.

Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – The National Police Headquarters has reported that an arms supplier for the riots on May 22, 2019 was a woman, identified as AF, alias Fifi, a resident of Rajawali, Pancoran, South Jakarta.

Head of the Police Public Relations Division, Inspector General Mohammad Iqbal, told a press conference on Monday (27/5/2019) at the Coordinating Ministry for Politics, Law and Security in Jakarta that a woman is a suspect, along with five others, known as HK alias Iwan, AZ, IR, TJ, and AD.

Of all the suspects, four of them, HK, AZ, IR, and TJ, participated in the riots on May 22 and planned to kill four national figures. The other two suspects are suppliers and sellers of firearms, namely AD and AF.

The role of Af, said Iqbal, was as a supplier or seller of 38 caliber Taurus revolvers.

“(She) is the owner and seller of the illegal Taurus revolver to HK. This is a woman,” Iqbal said.

AF received proceeds of Rp50 million. Police arrested AF on Friday (May 24, 2019) at BRI Bank, Jalan Thamrin, Central Jakarta.

A revolver has a rotating cylinder containing a bullet chamber.

This cylinder contains five to nine bullets, according to the size of the revolver and the type of bullet used. After being fired, depending on the mechanism, the cylinder can rotate immediately, or it must be rotated manually by pulling the hammer using the thumb.

Compared to automatic pistols, the operation of the revolver is easier and sometimes more reliable, given its simple mechanism.

The revolver, a Taurus 38 Special, is a handheld weapon made in Brazil in 2000 that has a special 4 inch barrel and 38 caliber length, with an effective firing range of 50 meters. This weapon is capable of firing 220 rounds of bullets per minute, with a range reaching 200 meters. (bam)
