Chairman of the DPP National Mandate Party (PAN), Sarifuddin Sudding, questioned the validity of the status Muannas Alaidid as a power of attorney Goodbye Armando. This was conveyed by Sudding in response to the steps taken by Muannas who claimed to be Ade’s attorney and reported the Secretary General of PAN Eddy Soeparno to the police.
“We ask for clarity on the legal status of brother Muannas Alaidid as Ade Armando’s legal attorney,” said Sudding in his statement, Thursday (21/4).
Sudding said that in the subpoena that Muannas sent to Eddy, Muannas represented Ade in the criminal case of beatings and alleged abuse that occurred in front of the DPR building.
According to him, Muannas did not represent Ade in the criminal case of defamation or spreading false news through electronic media as reported to the Polda Metro Jaya on April 18, 2022.
Sudding said that the validity of Muannas’ status as Ade’s attorney was important in determining PAN’s steps. He emphasized that the party did not want to waste time.
“If it is true that Muannas Alaidid cs received the power of attorney from Ade Armando, we request that the power of attorney be shown. So that all interested parties can read and study it. Their reporting letters to the police can also be shown to the public, can’t this time?” said Sudding.
Sudding also questioned the power of attorney sent to the PAN DPP when Ade’s legal team sent a subpoena. The letter is dated April 11, 2022.
According to him, the letter does not make sense because Eddy’s statement on social media was uploaded on April 12, 2022.
“It doesn’t make sense that the power of attorney was signed even though there is no case yet. This is a fatal and serious error that needs to be taken into account by all parties, especially the police. If it turns out that Muannas brother does not have a clear legal standing, then the Jakarta Metro Police should put the report aside,” he said. .
Sudding also asked Muannas to stop making statements to the public so as not to escalate the situation.
Eddy was reported by Ade Armando’s legal team because his tweet on his Twitter account was considered offensive to Ade. The report against Eddy was registered with the report LP/B/1990/IV/2022/SPKT/POLDA METRO JAYA, April 18, 2022.
In the report, the reporter is Andi Windo and the reported person is M Eddy Soeparno, while the victim is Ade Armando.
Eddy was reported on suspicion of defamation and or fake news through electronic media as regulated in Article 310 of the Criminal Code and or Article 331 of the Criminal Code and or Article 14 and Article 15 of Law No. 1 of 1946 concerning Criminal Law Regulations and or Article 27 paragraph 3 Jo Article 45 paragraph 3 of Law Number 19 of 2016 concerning ITE.
