BANDUNG-The Governor of West Java, Ahmad Heryawan deplores with the presence of criminal assault by watering Novel Baswedan with Mercury, as the investigator of Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), on Tuesday (4/11) last morning.
According to the Governor, the criminal assault towards Novel Baswedan is a criminal action that is not justified with any reasons.
"Yes, it shouldn't be like that. Imagine that an officer as a law enforcer, then there is an accident like that by watering mercury to their bodies, it is really brutal. It can't be justified with any reasons," he said.
The Governor expects that the authorities especially polices can catch the villain.
"Not only Novel Baswedan who gets threats, it is possible that other law enforcers also recieve that. There should be protection for them," he said.
The incident of watering mercury to Novel's face happened after he had finished the early morning prayer at Al Ihsan Mosque in Complex of Bumi Daya 2 Pengangsaan Kelapa Gading North Jakarta.
