Jakarta: Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) senior investigator Novel Baswedan answered the Jakarta Metropolitan Police's summons. Novel is ready to be examined in connection with the case of acid doused at him.
"This is related to the case in which I was a victim. It is in my interest to provide information," Novel said when he arrived at the Jakarta Metropolitan Police Directorate General Criminal Investigation Building on Monday, January 6, 2020.
Former member of the Criminal Investigation team at the Bengkulu Regional Police said it was not the first time he was examined regarding this case. He also claimed to be answering all of the investigator questions.
"Of course you have to be ready, this is not the first," he remarked.
This examination is a follow-up examination. I am waiting for the investigator to ask questions," he concluded.
Novel Baswedan was doused with acid by two men on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. The KPK investigator became a victim of terror after the Fajr prayer at the Jami Al Ihsan Mosque, Pegangsaan Dua, Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta.
During that period, former National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian formed a Fact Finding Team to dissect thecase. The team consisting of various experts concluded that this attack was related to Novel's work as a KPK investigator.
The investigation of the Novel case was then continued by the Technical Team, which began working on Thursday, August 1, 2019. The team, which consisted of personnel with a variety of backgrounds, worked quietly.
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo earlier gave an ultimatum to the National Police Chief General Idham Azis to expose the attackers as soon as possible. RM and RB were finally arrested on Thursday, December 26, 2019.
