Lawyer confirms Sjahril
position in National Police

Hotma Sitompul, lawyer of alleged case broker Sjahril Djohan, has said Sjahril had worked as a special aide to the National Police chief several years ago.

“I don’t know which field [Sjahril was] assigned to, but he was indeed an official aide to police chief. We have

a solid proof,” Hotma said Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.

Sjahril was familiar with some National Police top officers including former police deputy chief Comr. Gen.

Makbul Padmanegara and former detective chief Comr. Gen. Susno Duadji, he added.

However, information unit acting head Sr. Comr. Zulkarnain denied Sjahril's testimony.

“He never worked here [police headquarters]. We have checked it to the police’s human resources department,” he added.
