Mahfud made the assurance following the fire that broke out at the main building of the Attorney General's Office.
“The government fully guarantees that the case files being investigated by the Attorney General's Office, including the Djoko Tjandra case involving prosecutor Pinangki and Jiwasraya case are 100% safe,” said Mahfud in a press conference on Sunday, August 23.
Mahfud added that he would monitor the cases’ development. According to him, the legal proceedings must be transparent. The government, he underlined, would not falsify the cases, let alone hide other parties suspected of being involved in both cases.
