Former South Jakarta Police Criminal Investigation Unit 1 Chief AKP Rifaizal Samual recounted the moment he flew to Jambi to meet Nofriansyah Yosua Hutabarat’s family or Brigadier J by jet plane.
Rifaizal flew with former Karo Paminal Propam Polri Hendra Kurniawan.
In the follow-up trial of the alleged premeditated murder case with the defendants Ferdy Sambo and Putri Candrawathi, Rifaizal said that at that time he was invited by former Head of Detachment (Kaden) A of the Paminal Propam Police Bureau Agus Nurpatria to represent the South Jakarta Metro Police Criminal Investigation Unit AKBP Ridwan Rheky Nellson Soplanit.
He left with Hendra, Agus, and former Head of the Gakum Roprovost Divpropam Polri Susanto and aides.
“Brigjen HK [Hendra Kurniawan]AN [Agus Nurpatria]Kombes Susanto and their respective four aides,” said Rifaizal.
“By what?” asked the chairman of the panel of judges Wahyu Iman Santosa.
“Take a jet plane,” said Rifaizal.
“Know who the owner is?” continued the judge.
“I don’t know,” said Rifaizal.
Rifaizal said there were dozens of police guarding the house of Brigadier J’s family. They consisted of the ranks of the police, regional police, and regional police.
“Your Majesty’s permission, when it arrived, there were indeed many members from the police, regional police, regional police, around 50 members who carried out security at the funeral home,” he added.
He revealed that there had been a commotion over the recording of the event.
“I was with AN and HK. There was a bit of commotion regarding the recording of cellphones because the initial order was not to be crowded, but Pak HK was not angry. Family hysterics is normal,” explained Rifaizal.
For information, Rifaizal has been removed from his position based on an ethics trial some time ago. He is now placed in the Yanma Polri section.
A total of 17 witnesses were summoned by the prosecutor to be examined in today’s trial. However, only nine people have been confirmed to have attended, including Rifaizal.
