The perpetrators who have been named as suspects are Colonel Priyanto, who is a member of the Merdeka Military Command and two soldiers from the Diponegoro Military Command, Corporal Two Ahmad Sholeh and Corporal Two Dwi Atmoko.
Some time ago, a member of Commission I of the DPR RI who is also a retired army general, Major General of the TNI (Ret.) TB Hasanuddin, revealed that the two corporals who became suspects were former subordinates of Colonel Priyanto when he was the commander of the Kodim in Central Java.
“The two enlisted men accompanying the Colonel were one from the Diponegoro Military Command. Previously, he was the driver (Colonel Priyanto) when he was the Dandim in Central Java,” Hasan told CNNIndonesia.com, Thursday (30/12/2021).
The two corporals, he said, accompanied Colonel Priyanto on his way to Cilacap, Central Java after undergoing an Intel coordination meeting in Jakarta.
Colonel Priyanto served as Head of Intel Kasrem 133/Nani Wartabone (NW) Kodam XIII/Merdeka, based in Gorontalo. He has held this position since June 2020. Previously, he served as Dandim 0730/Gunungkidul and Irutum Inspectorate of Kodam IV/Diponegoro.
Hasanuddin also criticized the actions of three TNI AD soldiers. The former president’s military secretary couldn’t understand how a colonel who incidentally was a middle-ranking officer in the TNI AD institution would do such a thing. He also asked that the three perpetrators be severely punished.
