The shocking truth, Hengki went on to say, all suspects possessed an envelope packed with money. So they were allegedly paid thugs. “We have seized a total of Rp20 million,” he added.

The suspects were part of demonstrators rejecting the election result before the Election Supervisory Board’s (Bawaslu) office on Jalan MH Thamrin, Tuesday evening, May 21. The police turned away the mass to the Tanah Abang area.
