Asma Dewi Linked to Saracen over Proposal, Money Transfer

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The police continue to study evidence and leads indicating the involvement of Asma Dewi with Saracen. The online syndicate Saracen accused of creating and spreading hate speech for money. The police's cyber crime directorate stated that one of the preliminary evidence is the Rp75-million money transfer by Asma Dewi to one of Saracen's leaders.

"We are studying everything one by one. Based on the facts found, we will find out whether [the money transfer] was to pay for hate-speech posts," Sr. Police Comm. Martinus Sitompul said in Jakarta, Tuesday, Sept. 12.

She was also found to have transferred Rp75 million to Saracen's account. Asma Dewi is now being held at the Jakarta Metro Police's detainment center. 

The police have also arrested four of Saracen's group leaders: MFT, SRN, JAS, and MAH.  They are being charged with the Electronic Information and Transactions Law.
