The General Chairman of PAJAN Fully Supports The Decision of The TNI Commander, Munazir: ” The best punishment for murderers is death mandatory.”
Langsa City.ANN .- Chairperson of Peace And Justice For Action (PAJAN) Munazir, S.Hi, MH strongly supports the TNI Commander’s decision regarding the murder case which began with torture perpetrated by three TNI personnel who served as Paspampres against the victim a young man from Bireuen, Aceh.
Recently, the Commander in Chief of the Indonesian Armed Forces, Admiral Yudo Margono, spoke out regarding cases of alleged kidnappings and murders committed by personnel of the Presidential Security Force (Paspampres) against Acehnese living in South Tangerang City (Tangsel). Before being killed, the victim was tortured first.
The accused also demanded a ransom from the family. Head of the TNI Information Center (Kapuspen) Rear Admiral Julius Widjojono Yudo guaranteed that the TNI Military Police Center (Puspom) would process the perpetrators until they were brought to trial. “The TNI commander is concerned and will oversee this case,” said Julius in Jakarta, Monday (28/8/2023).
According to him (Julius), Admiral Yudo guaranteed that the perpetrators would be severely punished for their actions. Julis added that the TNI Commander also agreed that the opportunity for the perpetrators to be sentenced to death would be the most severe punishment. “In order for the perpetrators to be severely punished, the maximum penalty is death, the minimum is life imprisonment,” said Munazir, quoting Rear Admiral Julius’s words to Republika.co.id.
The death penalty reserved for the three TNI commanders, Admiral Yudo Margono, was welcomed by the PAJAN chairmanship because the perpetrators were considered to be very cruel, brutal and barbaric, because the perpetrators were considered to have no human nature and even had the heart to send videos of torture to the victims’ families,” said Munazir.
The man who active as Lawyer added. “It is very appropriate that these three TNI elements (persons) were sentenced to death because apart from their actions they were very condemn able, they had also added a red note to the TNI’s report card by creating human rights violations as if by tarnishing the peace that has been being cared for by the government all this time.” he concluded.
