He added, as law enforcer institutions, Brimob and National Police must be consistent, professional, proportional and independent. So, the facilitation would not be misused by other parties.
Previously, the Attorney General of General Crime Agung Noor Rachmad said Ahok would run the prison term in Mako Brimob prison. “This is a request of Cipinang Detention Center,” said Noor Rachmad in Jampidum Room, Jakarta, on Thursday (June 21).
