TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - National Police spokesperson Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said that the National Police has named ten activists arrested on Friday Morning, December 2, 2016, as suspects over alleged treason.
He clarified that the activists are still in police custody at the Mobile Brigade Headquarter in Depok and the Jakarta Police for interrogations.
“We have 24 hours [for questionings]. Please wait,” Boy told journalists at the National Monument (Monas) in Jakarta on Friday, December 2, 2016.
Boy reiterated that the decision to detain the activists would depend on the interrogation results.
“We cannot detain them without evidence,” he explained.
Boy revealed that the arrests were made based on police investigations that lasted for a few days, instead of reports.
The police spokesperson remained reluctant to reveal names of the arrested activists. However, reports confirmed that AD, RS, A, J, RSP, AZ, and RF were among them.
