Jakarta Police have named seven people suspects for their alleged involvement in an anti-communism protest in front of the Foundation of the Indonesian Legal Aid Institute (YLBHI), Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Sunday.
Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said they were named suspects for ignoring police, who had ordered them to disperse.
He said the suspects were not affiliated with any civil groups.
Argo said the suspects had been charged under articles 216 and 218 of the Criminal Code (KUHP) on disobeying police orders, which carries a maximum punishment of four months in jail.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the police had not arrested any protesters for injuring police officers or damaging the windows of YLBHI and police vehicles.
Argo said the police had yet to find the organizer of the protest or those who spread fake news about an event related to the now defunct Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) being held at the YLBHI.
Meanwhile, Jakarta Police have released another five witnesses who were arrested after the chaos.
Central Jakarta Police have also released 22 people who were questioned after the protest on Monday evening.
