- The National Police asserted they have enough information to explain to the public about the potential of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s expulsion during mass rallies planned for 25 Nov 16 and 2 Dec 16.
- National Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto said the police first learned about the possible expulsion of Jokowi during the two planned rallies before they shared their concerns to the public.
- “The National Police chief [Gen.Tito Karnavian] conveyed the expulsion issue based on information we had reviewed. It’s not raw information,” he said at the police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim) on 22 Nov 16.
- Rikwanto refused to reveal the basis of the police’s conviction on Jokowi’s expulsion potential, however. “We can’t reveal when and how we received information about it. This information is for internal purposes,” he said.
