The Arrest of Antasari

After questioning the non active Chief of the Commission for the Eradication of Corruption (KPK) Antasari Azhar for 8 hours yesterday, the Jakarta Police has announced that the former is a Suspect who Masterminded the murder of the Director of PT. Putera Rajawali Banjaran Nasrudin Zulkarnaen.

According to Kompas, this announcement was made by the Chief of the Jakarta Police Wahyono based on the result of prior interrogation of 10 other Suspects in this case i.e Daniel the Executor, Hendrikus Walen who gave instruction, Heri Santoso the motorcyclist, A & C as field observers of the execution, AM observer of the victim’s behavior, Wiliardi Wizard (Police Colonel), and Jerry Kusuma as liaison officer, and Sigit Haryo Wibisono who financed the execution. The Police have accused Antasari of committing Pre-Meditated Murder based on the Penal Code Art. 340, with a maximum punishment of death penalty, and therefore placed him under arrest.

According to Detik, in order to safeguard Antasari’s well being, the Police have not placed him in a general detention center where corrupters caught by KPK are placed but in a Narcotic Detention Center. In this regards, Antasari’s lawyer Ari Y. Amir was quoted as saying that on Tuesday he will request for postponement of detention. He further said that Antasari has given some hints that there is a grand scenario behind this case which he plan to reveal later on.

Let's just wait and see the further development of this case.
