TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Garuda Indonesia Labor Union (Sekarga) reportedly filed a police report against two Youtube vloggers for defaming the flag-carrier in social media platform, Instagram.

Sekarga leader Tomy Tampatty said that the police report is based on the loss sustained by the company following the social media post that they deemed was not proportional to what actually happened in the field.

“This has caused negative perception among people in regards to Garuda Indonesia’s services as the country’s national flag carrier,” said Tomy in a written statement on Tuesday.

He claims that a number of Garuda employees and members of Sekarda have indeed filed a police report against the vloggers.

Soekarno-Hatta Airport Police’s criminal investigation unit chief Adj. Commissioner Alexander Yurikho confirmed that the two YouTuber vloggers are Rius Vernandes and Elwiyana Monica who shared a photo of the hand-written business class menu during their trip via Instagram stories.
