TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The man who threatened to kill President Joko Widodo, Hermawan Susanto, is scheduled to go through a hearing at the Central Jakarta Court today, November 4. The court's website stated that today will be Hermawan's indictment hearing.
The indictment hearing was supposed to take place on Monday last week. But the hearing was delayed as the public prosecutor could not bring the defendant to court.
Last week, Hermawan's lawyer Abdullah Alkatiri had confirmed that his client would go through a hearing today.
Hermawan is charged with threatening the president's life because of what he said during a demonstration at the Bawaslu Building on may 10, 2019. His remark went viral on social media.
A video of him standing in a crowd circulated online. He was shown with Ina Yuniarti, the person who shared the video to the internet. Ina is charged with violating the ITE Law.
The Central Jakarta Court ruled Ina not guilty. Her verdict came out on October 14.
