Police Chief Inspects New Venue for Ahok`s Trial

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Police chief Insp. Gen. Mochamad Iriawan said that the Jakarta Police has evaluated the auditorium at the Agriculture Ministry that will be used as a location for the trial of religious blasphemy case involving inactive Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama. The trial has been scheduled on Tuesday, December 27, 2016.

“I went there twice. Today, I’m going back with the North Jakarta District Court chairman and the Jakarta Police deputy chief,” Iriawan said at the Jakarta Police headquarter on Friday, December 23, 2016.

Based on the temporary evaluation, he believes that the auditorium will be able to accommodate more visitors.

“The auditorium can accommodate 100 to 120 visitors,” Iriawan revealed, adding that visitors will be checked to prevent unwanted situations.

Earlier, the Supreme Court’s spokesperson Ridwan Mansyur said that the decision letter to relocate Ahok’s trial had been issued. The decision was made based on a request from the Jakarta High Court chairman and the Jakarta Police chief.

“This is aimed at accommodating more visitors and minimizing security and order issues,” Ridwan told Tempo. INGE KLARA
