    TEMPO.CO, JakartaAttorney General M. Prasetyo said police investigators had obtained strong evidence pertaining to Kivlan Zen’s possession of illegal firearm.

    Prasetyo claimed to have seen those pieces of evidence. “We’ve also known their talks, their plans, and the year as well,” he said in his office, Jakarta, Friday, May 31.

    According to Prasetyo, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) had received a notification letter to start an investigation (SPDP) towards the former Chief of Staff of the Army's Strategic Reserves Command in light of the case.

    Prasetyo said investigators and investigative prosecutors monitoring Kivlan’s legal proceedings would seriously look into the case as Kivlan had been named suspect in two cases: treason and possession of illegal firearm.

    “We’ll later see how the process of the two cases run, both are connected,” he remarked, adding that the two cases would be merged in court, and so investigators are currently conducting an in-depth examination into the ties of the two cases.

    Earlier, the AGO assigned five prosecutors to handle the alleged hoax spreading and alleged treason implicating Kivlan Zen after receiving the SPDP.

    Kivlan is presently detained at the Guntur military prison, South Jakarta. His attorney, Djuju Purwanto, has refuted claims that Kivlan possessed illegal firearm. 

    According to Djuju, the firearm belonged to Kivlan Zen's part-time personal driver, Azwarmy or AZ, who has been arrested by the police.
