A senior minister has ensured that the government would pursue the case of the "lost" investigation report created by a fact-finding team on the murder of prominent rights defender Munir Said Thalib.
"We will investigate this case. The government has nothing to hide," Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto told reporters on Wednesday.
Should the government locate the document, which was allegedly lost by the State Secretary, Wiranto assured that the investigative report would be disclosed to the public, as requested by the Central Information Commission (KIP).
If the report revealed new findings that could open further investigation into Munir's murder case, the Attorney General's Office would process the new information in accordance with the national law, Wiranto said.
"As long as we remain calm and refrain from placing blame [while searching for the report], I can assure that all will be settled," Wiranto added.
At the hearing held on Monday, the KIP said the investigation report authored by the government-commissioned fact-finding team and submitted to Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's administration in 2005 was public information and therefore should be disclosed immediately.
Garuda pilot Pollycarpus Priyanto was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for poisoning Munir with arsenic during a layover on a flight to Amsterdam on Sept. 7, 2004. He has already freed since November, 2014. (bbn)
