A Rolls-Royce Phantom that was reportedly used by lawmaker Herman Hery, who is accused of initiating an assault against a couple in South Jakarta on June 10, belongs to a private company, says the National Police’s traffic unit.

“The car is not registered to a person. It is owned by a company called PT Satria Mega Kencana,” the unit’s vehicle registration and identification director, Brig. Gen. Halim Pagarra, said on Friday as reported by tempo.co.

Halim added that the company’s office was located in Panglima Polim, South Jakarta.

“We have the complete data of the vehicle, but I can only reveal the name of the company and its address,” he said.

Ronny Yuniarto Kosasih filed a report with the South Jakarta Police on June 11 against Herman for allegedly assaulting him and his wife while he was being ticketed by the traffic police for driving in the Transjakarta bus lane on Jl. Artieri Pondok Indah in South Jakarta on June 10. 

It was reported that Ronny questioned the police officers who did not ticket the Rolls-Royce driver. 

Herman is a senior politician who has been a member of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) since 1999. He was elected in the West Nusa Tenggara II electoral district and currently serves as a member of the House of Representatives Commission III that oversees law, human rights and security issues.
