Journalist
What’s your reaction on the verdicts against Sambo and Eliezer that have been making headline lately?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

That is a judicial decision. It is the judicial authority. I cannot intervene. However, I believe the verdicts are based on facts and pieces of evidence. I believe that the witness testimonies were also detrimental to the verdict. But once again, I cannot make any comments.

Journalist
Do you think the court handed a fair verdict, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
The verdict has been made. We must respect the decision. Everyone must respect it.

Journalist
Regarding the meeting with Mr. Prabowo, Did you have a meeting with him today, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
I meet him every day.

Journalist
For what, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
Why don’t you ask me about the meeting with Mr. Airlangga? I also met with Mr. Airlangga and Mr. Prabowo.
