Jakarta: The National Police is preparing its personnel to secure the release of former Jakarta governor and blasphemy convict Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama.
"We will anticipate all risks," National Police spokesperson Brigadier General Dedi Prasetyo told reporters on Wednesday, January 23, 2018.
The government earlier confirmed that Ahok will become a free man tomorrow. His lawyer Teguh Samudera recently said that Ahok will host a talk show and run oil business after his release.
Ahok was convicted of committing blasphemy in 2016. He was sentenced to two years in prison.
"Depok Police and Mobile Brigade Unit will secure the location," he said.
