Jakarta, IO – The facts behind the murder of Police Brigadier Nofriansyah Yosua Hutabarat (Brig. J) continue to be unveiled. The latest is the testimony of an ambulance driver named Ahmad Syahrul Ramadhan who was in charge of transporting Brig. J’s body at Ferdy Sambo’s official residence in Duren Tiga to Kramat Jati Police Hospital.

Syahrul was one of the witnesses summoned at the South Jakarta District Court, Monday (7/11). He testified before three defendants in the case, namely Second Patrolman Richard Eliezer (Bharada E), Chief Brigadier Ricky Rizal, and Kuat Ma’ruf.

Syahrul revealed that he found Brig. J’s body still wearing a mask and covered in blood. Syahrul said he went to the scene after receiving a call from the call center at 19.08 WIB telling to transport Brig. J’s body, reported Tempo.

When approaching the location, Syahrul was asked to turn off the ambulance siren by a police member from the internal affairs division. He was then told to go to the garage. Then Syahrul opened the rear door of the ambulance and took a stretcher because there were already two cars parked in the parking lot.
