    He claimed to be confused when he was arrested on charges of treason. "They just took my hand and dragged me. This is unfair," said Lieus. "What is this accusation of treason?"

    Lieus was reported to the Bareskrim by Eman Soleman on suspicions of spreading hoaxes and attempting treason on May 7, 2019. The report was then handed over to the Metro Jaya Regional Police.

    In the report, Eman included a USB flash disk as evidence. The USB storage holds a video of Lieus Sungkharisma making the alleged false statements.
