The Criminal Investigation Unit of the National Police is still completing the case file for the alleged blasphemy case with the suspect Panji Gumilang.

The case file was returned by the investigating prosecutor to the Attorney General's Office (AGO) to the Criminal Investigation Unit of the Police because it was deemed incomplete on August 29.

"It is in the process of being completed," said the Director of General Crimes at the National Police Criminal Investigation Agency Brigadier General Djuhandhani Rahardjo Puro when confirmed, Tuesday, September 5.

The prosecutor returned the Panji Gumilang case file to the Criminal Investigation Police investigators because there were formal and material requirements that were deemed incomplete.

"The research prosecutor's team is of the opinion that the case file on behalf of the ARPG suspect is not formally and materially complete and therefore needs to be completed or fulfilled by the investigating team of the Directorate of General Crimes at Bareskrim Polri in accordance with the prosecutor's instructions," said the Head of the Attorney General's Office, Ketut Sumedana.

Not only returning, the research prosecutor will coordinate with the investigative team. That way, the process of completing the case file goes quickly.

"Furthermore, in order to make the time given by the Law effective, the research prosecutor will coordinate with investigators to accelerate the completion of the investigation process," said Ketut.

In that case, Panji Gumilang was charged with multiple articles. First, Article 14 Paragraph 1 of Law Number 1 of 1946 concerning Criminal Law Regulations which carries a penalty of 10 years in prison.

Then, Article 45A paragraph 2 in conjunction with Article 28 paragraph 2 of Law Number 19 of 2016 concerning ITE with a threat of 6 years in prison.

Finally, Panji Gumilang was also charged with Article 156 A of the Criminal Code. In this article, the penalty is 5 years in prison.
