Former national police detective chief Comr. Gen
(ret) Susno Duadji published a video to Youtube rather than serve his jail term following the Supreme
Court’s rejection of his appeal.
The video was uploaded through an account under
the name Yohana Celia. However, it was not indicated when and where the
video was made. In the 15-minute video, Susno said that he was currently in West Java, meeting with supporters of
his legislative candidacy with the Crescent Star Party (PBB).
“I am in good health and not running. I am not in the
public eye to prevent an illegal arrest,” said Susno, as quoted by
Susno had been sentenced to three-and-a-half years
in jail and a fine of Rp 200 million after being proven guilty of general
election security funds misappropriation while he was West Java police
chief and receiving bribe money during the investigation of PT Salmah
Arowana Lestari (SAL) investment scam.
Susno rejected the sentence
on the grounds of administrative flaws in the court’s ruling.(asw/dic)
