(en) INDONESIAN BLACK CROSS: Letters from Behind the Trellis By Rio [PALANGHITAM]
Sat, 4 Jul 2020 08:31:55 +0300
We have been detained for months, isolated and not allowed to meet family. At the initial arrest, we were intimidated, the police did not
immediately explain the purpose of his arrival. They forced us to come to the office. We argue. Suddenly one of them took out a long barrel
and cocked and held us up. I asked for his arrest warrant, but our names were not written. Riski and Aflah were handcuffed and told to sit,
their faces beaten. After that, we were taken to the Tangerang District Police Station. There we were forced to BAP, we asked LBH legal
counsel. They say "it's late" and "Tuh must be LBH". Riski was separated, he was beaten, kicked. He has around 2 million in cash. He was
forced to admit that the money was sent money. After that, we were forced to test urine, monitored and had been hit by a double stickbecause
you don't pee. After that, Riski Riyanto and I were taken to the scene of the crime scene, in our car being hit several times. After that
back to the police station. After that the three of us were interrogated separately. I am the same as Aflah, Riski screams beaten, his head
is covered with plastic so that he does not breathe while being beaten, Aflah and I are also covered his head so that he does not breathe
while being beaten, forced to admit that we are paid.
After that, we were taken to our respective homes. In the car the police said, "If you can't say anything at home, the handcuffs will be
covered too." First to my cafe[Cafe Egaliter- ed], there is a Bagas cellphone. I was forced to admit that it was my cellphone. I was punched
in the chest many times. At home my clothes and alma mater were taken without cause. Likewise, the motorcycle and wallet in the cafe. My ID
card was photographed and marketed in the media, as was our face. Our faces photographed by the police were spread, entered the media with
unfair news content. We bear the pain of being a scapegoat. The graffiti that we made is not to cause trouble. We criticize the government.
We are concerned about their handling of covid-19.
When we were detained and taken to the Polda Unit 3, we were kicked, beaten, and my ears were crushed. It happened in Unit 3 of the Jakarta
Metropolitan Police Unit. After being taken out of the police station we were suddenly taken to the Regional Police using a Jatanras car.
The police carried a long barrel in the Regional Police. We were intimidated many times, forced to use a police lawyer named "Halim."
Families cannot meet us. During stage 2 of the Prosecutors' Office, we were forced to use Halim's lawyer. Even though we have signed a power
of attorney with LBH. After that, we were transferred to the police station without prior information to the family.
To the Honorable Judge, we seek a just decision. We've been tormented so much. This letter I make is real and full of awareness.
Letter From Behind the Trellis (Written by Riski)
We would like to share some of the violence and intimidation during our arrest. Starting from being pointed at by a long-barreled weapon
during arrest, beatings in several organs, and we were isolated and made difficult by legal assistance.
When we were arrested, we were held by a long barrel so as not to fight. Even though we only requested that our arrest warrant be shown.
When we were taken to the Tangerang District Police, we were beaten while in the car even with blunt objects.
Arriving at the police station we were greeted by several individuals who immediately hit here and there. When we were at the BAP, we asked
for legal assistance, but were refused on the grounds that it was already late. Shortly afterwards came investigators from the Regional
Police interrogated us. We finished at BAP around 5 a.m.
Then we were put in a small cell to be told to rest, around 12 noon came a person from the Police and Police Headquarters interrogated us.
We were taken to a different room. In the room we experienced some violence: from beatings, kicks, to being covered with plastic.
All of that was done so that we would admit that we were told or paid. Even though we are honest, we have no one to order and no one to pay.
And when we were detained at the Regional Police Headquarters, it was difficult for us to get legal assistance from LBH.
The chronology is written exactly as we feel.
