According to Ahmad Taufan, it is quite logical to want to reveal an alleged act of harassment as the report has now been investigated and handled by the Criminal Investigation Unit of the Police.

According to Ahmad Taufan's statement, the harassment incident that triggered the shootout that led to the death of Brigadier J, was not witnessed by Ferdy Sambo's two aides, Brigadier Ricky and Bharada E.

So, the only person who can be questioned regarding this heartbreaking incident is only Ferdy Sambo's wife, Putri Candrawati or Ibu Putri.

"Ricky and Bharada E did not witness. They only heard the screams from Ibu Putri. They don't know why the screams occurred. It means that the only living witness is Ibu Putri," he said.

Taufan confirmed that the examination process for Inspector General Ferdy Sambo's wife had not been scheduled because her psychological condition was still traumatized.

"Because of psychological problems. With LPSK also not completing the procedure. So how do we conclude. We can't. Is it true or not," he said.
