Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law and Security Mahfud MD (ANTARA)

JAKARTA - The Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menko Polhukam) Mahfud MD revealed that the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) was involved in the shooting case on the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road carrying sharp weapons.

This fact was conveyed after he received a report from Komnas HAM and said this violated the rules of law.

"That there are civilian groups carrying firearms, homemade weapons and sharp weapons which are clearly prohibited by law and they all have pictures," Mahfud said in a press conference held in his office, Thursday, January 14.

Apart from that, based on the findings of Komnas HAM, Mahfud also revealed that this incident actually happened because the FPI army lured the police. Because in the report, it was stated that there was a command for members of the laskar to crash into a police car.

"Even if the Komnas HAM report had not been provoked, it would not have happened. Because Habib Rizieq is far away, but there is a single command he is there, just take it in circles, pepet, crash, etc. are here," he said.

"Command with the recorded voice is there. Later we will reveal it in court and we will not cover it up and I will forward this to the police," added the former Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court (MK).

Previously reported, Komnas HAM had indeed mentioned two things that were conveyed by Mahfud when presenting the results of his investigation. At that time, the Commissioner and Head of the Komnas HAM Investigation Team Choirul Anam said the two FPI paramilitary cars were actually able to escape from police surveillance prior to the shooting incident on the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road.

However, this step was not taken. Two cars, the Toyota Avanza Silver and Chevrolete Spin chose to wait for a car belonging to the police.

"The two FPI cars managed to make a distance and had the opportunity to run away and get away. However, (the two cars, red) took action to wait and finally they met again with the car of the K 9143 EL officer and two other cars, namely B 1278 KJD and B 1739. PWQ, "he said in a press conference which was broadcast online, Friday, January 8.
