Former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) will open up on all the measures his administration had taken at the time to follow-up the investigation of a fact-finding team into the murder of prominent rights defender Munir Said Thalib, a Democratic Party politician has ensured.

"Pak SBY wants to explain to the public that he substantially supports the enforcement of the recommendations from the fact-finding team. We just need to wait two or three days for pak SBY to [further] explain," Dems deputy chairman Didik Mukrianto said on Monday.

Didik stressed that Yudhoyono would disclose the pro-Justitia process that had been enforced against all parties whose names were referred by the government-commissioned fact-finding team.

Yudhoyono also wanted to reveal that seven bundles of the fact-finding team's investigative report, submitted to his administration in 2005, had been distributed to several law enforcement institutions, including the National Police and the Attorney General's Office, Didik said.

Following the recent fiasco over the "lost" investigative report at the State Secretariat, Yudhoyono, who is also Democratic Party chairman, has spoken up through his official Twitter account @SBYudhoyono, saying that the media reports about the missing document have been politicized.

Munir died onboard a Garuda Indonesia flight to Amsterdam on Sept. 7, 2004.

The Central Information Commission (KIP) in its ruling on Oct. 10, had ordered the State Secretariat to disclose the fact-finding team's report on Munir's murder. However, it later claimed the document was not in their possession. (bbn)
