"I deeply regret my actions," said Richard.

"I just wanted to say I am merely an officer who does not have the ability to refuse orders from a general, thank you," he added.

In the previous indictment, it is known that Ferdy Sambo asked his member Bharada E to shoot Brigadier J. This instruction began when Sambo's driver, Kuat Ma'ruf summoned Brigadier J to the living room of Sambo's official residence.

Meanwhile, Bharada E's attorney, Ronny Talapessy asked the panel of judges to present the other four defendants; Ferdi Sambo, Putri Candrawathi, Ricky Rizal Wibowo, and Kuat Ma'ruf in Bharada E's trial as witnesses.

"We ask Your Excellency through the public prosecutor to present witnesses named Ferdy Sambo, Putri Candrawathi, Ricky Rizal Wibowo, and Strong Ma'ruf," said Bharada E's attorney,” said Ronny Talapessy during the trial.

The request was submitted because he wanted to uphold the principle of a speedy trial, so he requested the presence of the four suspects as witnesses at the trial.

"In accordance with the principle of a quick trial, we ask for the next three days," said Ronny.
