    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Head of the Crimnal Investigation Unit of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Resort Police Adj. Commissioner Alexander Yurikho, announced that the Police have questioned Garuda Indonesia Vice President of Cabin Crew Roni Eka Mirsa after filing a report against Twitter account @digeeembok that has accused him of being a "pimp."

    "The statement from the person filing the report was obtained on December 6," said Alexander in a text message to Tempo on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.

    Meanwhile, police are still investigating the person managing the Twitter account. "Just let the process run," Alexander said. 

    Previously, Garuda Indonesia Vice President for Cabin Crew Roni Eka, reported Twitter user @digeeembok to the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Resort Police. Roni reported the user for calling him a pimp for the airline's flight attendants.

    After Garuda Indonesia CEO Ari Ashkara was fired, Twitter account @digeeembok made a series of posts about Ari's alleged poor behaviors. The account also mentioned Roni.

    The account accused Roni of acting as a pimp who instructed Garuda Indonesia flight attendants to "accompany" Ari Askhara and four other Garuda Indonesia officials in Bali.

    As of the time of this story's publication, @digeeembok was still tweeting about how Roni pimped out the airline's own cabin crew.
