REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Chief of Public Relations Division of National Police, Inspector General Setyo Wasisto, said that the Indonesian Facebook representative needed time to collect data before meeting the Criminal Investigation Agency (Bareskrim). Thus, the schedule of inspections will be postponed until next week.

Earlier, there were indications of a leak of one million Facebook user data from Indonesia in the case of Cambridge Analytica.

According to Wasisto, it has not found any Facebook social networking users in Indonesia whose data have been stolen for a particular interest.

"There was no such type of Cambridge Analytica case found during the inspection, which was conducted by police and Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kemkominfo)," he revealed.

Wasisto noted that police have not received any reports from the public related to the leakage of Facebook user data.

According to the data, the number of Indonesian people who access Facebook has reached more than 115 million people per month, out of the 2.07 billion users in the world.

Meanwhile, the Commission I of Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR) will follow the US move to call Facebook to attend a hearing in order to clarify an allegation over the data leak scandal of the users in Indonesia. More than million Indonesian users are online on Facebook, and they may get affected by the data privacy violation committed by the British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, the Vice Chairman of Commission I Satya Widya Yudha said in a statement, Wednesday.

The parliament members will call on the Facebook representatives to clarify the allegation by answering whether the information has only been collected.
