TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The anti-hoax independent community alliance announced its plan to report President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to police’s criminal investigation department (Bareskrim).
The group’s coordinator Hasan Basri demands Jokowi to prove the existence of “Russian propaganda” the president once mentioned in his campaign on February 2, in Surabaya and February 3, in Solo.
In his campaign, Jokowi called out his political rivals and candidate Prabowo – Sandiaga Uno for hiring a foreign consultant upon facing the 2019 presidential election.
Moreover, Hasan Basri deems Jokowi had lied to the public if such propaganda is proven to be non-existent.
“We hope the Bareskrim will be able to process the case professionally and unbiased,” said Hasan Basri in a press conference on Wednesday. The group is scheduled to file the police report today at 13:00 local Jakarta time.
