Indonesia: Solidarity Update on the Trial of the Four Anarchist Prisoners in Yogyakarta
26.07.18: The trial has begun for the 4 anarchist prisoners of war who were transferred to Cebongan Prison for the Yogyakarta M1 (May Day) case.
The four imprisoned comrades are:
- Azhar M. Hasan (Azhar)
- Zikra Wahyudi (Zikra)
- Muhammad Ibrahim (Boim)
- Muhammad Edo Asrianur (Edo)
The May 1st protests that took place at the UIN Yogyakarta area, against the New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) and the monarchy-feudalism related to Sultan Ground/Pakualaman Ground. Resulted in 11 comrades being detained at the Yogyakarta Regional Police Station (Polda Yogyakarta) suspected of destruction and arson of State facilities (a Police Station).
As of May 1st, 2018 to today (July 4th, 2018), the anarchist prisoners in Yogyakarta have still not faced court proceedings. Information received is that the anarchist prisoners should have been transferred to Cebongan Prison in Sleman on June 29th, 2018, as the prosecutor's office has been holding them in Yogyakarta police station (Polda Yogyakarta) since May 1st for the investigation process. However, the planned transfer was cancelled and the period of detention at Polda Yogyakarta has been extended until July 30th, 2018 on the grounds of further investigation. Our prediction is the extended investigation process is due to this case being politicized, it's evident by the many opinions that appear on the surface that the May 1st action was an act of opposition against the government.
