HTI: Suspect of Iriana Jokowi Defamation Case Not Linked to HTI  

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) spokesman Ismail Yusanto confirmed that defamation suspect Dodik Ikhwanto who insulted First Lady Iriana Jokowi was not HTI member. 

“No, if he was an [HTI] member, we would make sure that such a thing wouldn’t happen,” said Ismail regarding the arrest of the defamation suspect on Wednesday, September 13.

Bandung City Police arrested the owner of Instagram account @warga_biasa that published offensive contents against first lady Iriana Jokowi. The next day after the arrest, National Police Spokesman Insp. Gen. Setyo Wasisto announced that police have named Dodik as a suspect.

Police apprehended several items owned by the suspect that features symbols identical to HTI attributes.

Ismail clarified that the black flag found to be on his property was not an official HTI flag, but a Tawhid Ar-Royah flag. Ismail said that the flag was used by Prophet Muhammad PBUH. He further explained that even though there are similarities, people who own the Ar-Royah flag was not always affiliated with HTI.

Ismail suspected that there were attempts to link the actions of Dodik with HTI. He questioned police’s decision to publicly announce their findings regarding HTI attributes.
