    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – American investigative journalist Allan Nairn on Monday was summoned by the National Commission for Human Rights (Komnas HAM) to talk about his recent interview with former National Intelligence Agency (BIN) chief Hendropriyono.

    “I was invited to come to Komnas HAM on Monday,” he said on Sunday, adding that he would speak bluntly if asked to tell about Hendropriyono.

    Allan seized the spotlight after releasing his interview with Prabowo Subianto. Lately in his personal blog, he also posted his interview with Hendropriyono about the death of human rights activist Munir, Talangsari Massacre, mass riots during the East Timor referendum in 1999 and his closeness with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

    In Allan’s interview with Hendropriyono last week, Hendropriyono admitted “command responsibility” in the assassination of Munir.

    According to Allan, Hendropriyono is ready to bear the consequences of his action and willing to give information to Komnas HAM and the Attorney General on conditions that Komnas HAM and the Attorney General meet him in his house.
