Jakarta, Jubi – Inactive Papua Governor Lukas Enembe was taken by investigators of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to the Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital on Tuesday night, January 17, 2023, at around 8 p.m. Jakarta time, or 10 p.m. Papua time.
According to representative of Lukas Enembe’s Legal Team Emanuel Herdyanto, as soon as he received the notification letter from KPK about the hospitalization of Lukas Enembe, his party immediately went to the Army Hospital, along with other legal team members.
“Lukas Enembe was admitted to the Kartika II Room of Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital. I got the notification of the Suspension Notice at 9 p.m., therefore I estimate that Lukas Enembe was admitted to the hospital at around 8 p.m.,” said Emanuel Herdyanto in a written statement received by Jubi on Wednesday, January 18.
He added that earlier on Tuesday morning, the legal team planned to visit Lukas Enembe at the KPK Detention Center but were unable to because Lukas Enembe was taken to the KPK Red and White Building for questioning. Later at noon, the legal team received news that KPK investigators took Lukas Enembe to the Army Hospital to be examined because his leg was swollen.
“The results of the examination came out at 7 p.m., saying Lukas Enembe had to be hospitalized,” said Emanuel, adding he did not know Lukas Enembe would be hospitalized for how long.
Emanuel said the legal team had coordinated with the KPK so that Lukas Enembe’s personal physician, Anton Mote, could examine Lukas Enembe’s condition.
“The KPK allows personal doctors to visit but first we must send a letter of request to the KPK,” said Emanuel.
Responding to the results of the medical examination, Emanuel said that Lukas Enembe was indeed in a state of illness and needed to be treated at the hospital. “Indeed, Lukas Enembe is sick and needs to be hospitalized,” said Emanuel. (*)
