Prosecutors have demanded that the wife and former bodyguard of ex-National Police internal affairs chief Ferdy Sambo be sentenced to eight and 12 years in prison, respectively, for their alleged roles in the murder of police officer Brig. Nofriansyah Yosua Hutabarat in July 2022.
At the South Jakarta District Court on Wednesday, prosecutors contended that Ferdy’s wife Putri Chandrawathi had helped plan and set in motion the murder of Ferdy’s aide-de-camp. Her involvement in the plot, the prosecution said, began after she claimed that Yosua had raped her in Magelang, Central Java, on July 7, 2022, a day before Yosua’s murder.
Prosecutors alleged on Wednesday that many of Putri’s statements were fallacious and that there was no convincing evidence of sexual assault, pointing instead to a possible affair between Putri and Yosua, as a polygraph test had suggested that Putri had lied when she denied the affair.
