According to Argo, the investigators rejected the request because Ratna’s case was still in the investigation stage. “We have to investigate the witness. We need to cross-check the result with Bu Ratna,” he said.

Ratna’s attorney, Insank Nasrudin, said that their request was based on the consideration of Ratna's health and age. 

Ratna Sarumpaet has been detained in the Jakarta Police Detention Center since Friday, October 5. The police arrested Ratna after set her as a suspect in a hoax related to her persecution.
