JAKARTA, Media – The Directorate of Cyber ​​Crime, Bareskrim Polri today summoned Permadi Arya alias Abu Janda to be examined as a witness. Abu Janda was questioned regarding his tweet on social media which was allegedly racist.

“Yes. Today the plan will be questioned as a witness, ”said the Director of General Crimes at Bareskrim Polri, Brigadier General Slamet Uliandi, Monday (1/2/2021).

Slamet revealed that Bareskrim received two different reports from the one reported by Abu Janda. Another report is related to the alleged racism against the former Komnas HAM Commissioner, Natalius Pigai.

“For reporting in this case regarding the alleged racism tweet to Brother NP (Natalius Pigai), we will also summon the concerned person in a different summons,” he said.

Abu Janda was reported about the tweet “arrogant Islam” he made on his Twitter account @ permadiaktivis1. The report numbered: LP / B / 0056 / I / 2021 dated January 29, 2021. Abu Janda was reported for crimes of hatred or hostility between individuals and or between groups (sara) Law No. 19 of 2016 concerning amendments to Law No. 11 of 2006 regarding information and electronic transactions of article 28 paragraph (2) on blasphemy of religion Law No. 1 of 1946 on the Criminal Code Article 156A.

Regarding law enforcement in cases of hate speech, National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo briefly explained that his party would enforce the law in a transparent and fair manner. He wants to remove the sharp downward and blunt upward legal notion of law. General Sigit also said that law enforcement must be carried out humanely.

This was conveyed by General Sigit during the fit and proper test at the Indonesian Parliament. Initially, General Sigit (at that time still in the rank of Commissioner General) said that so far the National Police had received a number of inputs, criticisms and hopes about realizing a sense of justice. He emphasized that he would make improvements, one of which was related to law enforcement that was not selective.

“For example, in the future, there should be no law only being sharp downward but blunt upward. There should no longer be a case of Grandma Minah stealing cocoa and then being prosecuted because it is only for realizing legal certainty, ”said General Sigit in the DPR which was broadcast live, Wednesday (20/1).
