According to Rikwanto, the meeting may be held this week. He added that police are determined to resolve the case by examining dozens of witnesses, CCTV footages, and expert witnesses.

Therefore, Rikwanto expects civil society not to make things worse by issuing statements that undermine the police. He said that the people should instead actively provide new information to help crack down on the case.

The acid attack on Novel Baswedan took place on April 11. He was attacked by two individuals after performing the morning prayer near his house in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta.
