Director of Amnesty International Indonesia - Usman Hamid

SURABAYAPAGI.com, Jakarta - Amnesty International Indonesia (AII) Executive Director Usman Hamid considered, Molotov bomb attacks at the residence of KPK leadership Agus Rahardjo and Laode M Syarif, were a real form of terror against human rights defenders in the anti-corruption sector.

Usman asked President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) to order the National Police Chief to protect KPK leaders.

"Unmitigated attacks occur at the level of the KPK leadership, this indicates a repetition due to the absence of punishment or impunity for perpetrators of attacks on human rights workers in the anti-corruption sector," Usman said in Jakarta on Wednesday (10/1).

Usman argued that the police should immediately reveal the perpetrators and masterminds behind the terrorist bombings at the residence of the two KPK leaders.

"This incident must also be a whip for the police to complete the investigation of the actors behind the attack on the Baswedan novel, including those who have command responsibility," he said.

Usman further argued that President Joko Widodo must take the initiative to order the National Police Chief to protect KPK leaders and employees and their families after incidents of throwing Molotov cocktails.
