Kontras stated that it had sent letters requesting public information disclosure to three state institutions: the State Secretariat, the Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Ministry (Kemenko Polhukam), and the Law and Human Rights Ministry (Kemenkumham) on August 23.
The State Secretariat replied to the letter on September 2. However, they said they did not have the authority to provide the information and advised KontraS to contact Kemenkopolhukam.
Fatia explained that Kontras also received a reply from Kemenkopolhukam on September 16. But the document has yet to be received.
“However, on September 20, we received information that the presidential decree was signed by the State Secretariat on August 26, exactly two days after it received our request for information disclosure,” she said.
