    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Suciwati Munir, the wife of a human rights activist Munir Said Thalib, refused to meet with President Joko Widodo or Jokowi during the regular protest, known as Kamisan, held by victims of past human rights abuses today if the meeting held at the State Palace.

    President Jokowi is scheduled to meet with the families of the victims.

    “Jokowi should pay the Kamisan protest participants a visit. He came when the 212 Rally was held,“ said Suciwati on Thursday, May 31.

    By visiting the Kamisan protest participants at the location, according to Suciwati, President Jokowi would show his good faith to meet with the participants.

    Suciwati added that President Jokowi would only need to cross the street since the location is very close to the State Palace.

    In relation to Jokowi's intention to solve human rights cases, including the murder of her husband, Munir, Suciwati said that she no longer believes it can be solved. Therefore, she only asks President Jokowi to take concrete action to conduct an investigation into the case.
