JAKARTADAILY.ID – Inspector General Teddy Minahasa faces a dishonorable dismissal sanction (PTDH) from the Police Code of Ethics Commission (KKEP) due to his involvement in the distribution of methamphetamine narcotics.

On Tuesday, May 30, 2023, the former West Sumatra Regional Police Chief attended a hearing at the National Police Code of Ethics Commission (KKEP).

According to a report by pmjnews, Brigadier General Ahmad Ramadhan, the Karo Penmas Public Relations Division of the National Police, stated that Teddy Minahasa has filed an appeal against the PTDH's sanctions. Ramadhan said, "The violator expressed an appeal" during a press conference held on the evening of May 30, 2023.

During the KKEP trial, Teddy Minahasa was accused of engaging in disgraceful behavior by instructing his subordinates to tamper with evidence and replace it with alum.

Ramadhan explained, "The alleged violator ordered AKBP DP (Dody Prawiranegara) to replace 41.4 kg of methamphetamine evidence seized by the Bukittinggi Police Satresnarkoba with 5 kg of alum. Additionally, he ordered 5 kg of methamphetamine to be handed over to LP alias An (Linda Pujiastuti alias Anita) for sale."

In the KKEP hearing, Teddy Minahasa faced charges of violating multiple articles, including Article 13 paragraph 1 of Government Regulation Number 1 of 2003 regarding the Dismissal of Polri members, in conjunction with various sections of Police Regulation Number 7 of 2022, which encompass the Professional Code of Ethics and the Police Code of Ethics Commission.

Jon Arman Saragih, the chairman of the panel, stated, "For that reason, the defendant was sentenced to life imprisonment."

It is worth noting that the verdict handed down to the former West Sumatra Regional Police Chief Inspector General Pol Teddy Minahasa was less severe than the prosecution's demands in the previous trial, which sought the death penalty.
