Last November, National Police Chief Insp.Gen. Bambang H. Danuri and Attorney General Hendarman Supanji told the House of Representatives that they have a phone call recording that proved Deputy Chiefs of the Corruption Eradication Commission received bribes from businessman Anggodo Wijaya.
However, when the Corruption Court recently instructed the Police to present the said recording, they can only present a Call Data Record (CDR) which show telephone numbers but no conversation at all.
According to National Police spokesman Edward Aritonang the Police never mention that they have the recording,
While, the Attorney General Office's spokesman told reporters that such recording never exists.
The above confusing statements have been strongly protested by members of the House, anti corruption activists, academicians and non government organizations, who alleged that the Police has been spreading a Public Lie.
In reaction to these allegation, the Police said that they never have any intention to spread a Public Lie.
