“As noted in Article 17 of the KIP Law, there are things we cannot disclose, and that can be revealed in the court” Awi added.
In the case of the red notice status, the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Unit named four people as suspects. They are Insp. Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte and Brig. Gen.
