Jakarta – Secretary General of the United Development Party (PPP), Arsul Sani, said his party supports the correct legal process against Habil Marati or HM, a PPP candidate who was allegedly involved in the planned assassination of a number of state officials some time ago.
Arsul said that his party had tried to contact HM via telephone, but could not connect. “But the principle is for PPP, let alone cadres, anyone suspected of committing a criminal act should be investigated and investigated, legal proceedings are carried out,” Arsul Sani said in Jakarta on Wednesday (6/12/2019).
“(Legal apparatus, red) No need to feel bad because for example (HM) is a member of a government coalition. No. You have to be the same, all are equal before the law,” said Arsul Sani.
He said he did not want to wonder whether HM was indeed proven guilty or not concerning the allegations against him. To be sure, PPP already has rules in the party’s Articles of Association and Households, that a stop can be made.
“There is a rule that someone is said to have been betrayed or sentenced with a criminal sentence of 5 years or more that could be dismissed from the PPP party,” said Asrul Sani.
PPP will not carry out an internal investigation into the case involving HM. Everything is left to law enforcement to investigate it.
