President Jokowi, he said, directly accepted the text of the investigation report with all of his recommendations.

"So, that was the conclusion after the President met with the Komnas HAM commissioner to invite me to talk, the content of which hoped that all Komnas HAM recommendations would be guarded and followed up. Nothing should be hidden," said Mahfud.

Regarding the indication of an "unlawful killing" in the car, he said, it would be revealed through the court why it happened.
