Pros and Cons of Rizieq Shihab's Billboard Removal by TNI, Military Observer: This Exceeds TNI's Authority

KOMPAS.TV - The removal of billboards and banners with pictures of FPI leader Rizieq Shihab continues to be carried out in a number of areas.

In Bogor, West Java, the removal of billboards was carried out by Satpol PP members together with members of the TNI & Polri.

Bogor City Satpol PP officers took down billboards with pictures of Rizieq Shihab in various sizes.

Head of the Bogor City Police Headquarters, Agustiansyach, said that large billboards and banners were removed because they did not report their installation to either the Regional Revenue Service or the Bogor City Kesbangpol.

The removal of the Rizieq Shihab billboard was also carried out by the West Java Sumedang Civil Service Police Unit.

Meanwhile, in a number of areas in Jakarta you can still see banners with the image of Habib Rizieq Shihab installed in public places such as pedestrian bridges. A banner with a picture of Rizieq was found in the Tanah Abang area, Central Jakarta.

Previously, Pangdam Jaya Major General TNI Dudung Abdurachman explained that he had ordered the removal of FPI billboards that were installed in any place.

A TNI Kodam Jaya soldier explained that he accompanied Satpol PP to remove the Rizieq Shihab billboard which was installed without permission.

However, the FPI instead put up the billboards that had been taken down again. This made the TNI choose to take firm action.

"That's my order, how many times the Satpol PP is lowered, increase it again. That's my order," said Dudung, leading the troop rally at Monas, Central Jakarta, Friday (20/11/2020).

The FPI views this statement from Pangdam Jaya as a strange state political policy that does not uphold the principles of justice.

The removal of Rizieq Shihab's billboards and banners by the TNI on the orders of Pangdam Jaya, Major General Dudung Abdurrahman, also sparked pros and cons.

Military observer, Khairul Fahmi even stated that the removal of these billboards actually exceeded the TNI's duties and authority because it should not be the TNI's domain to remove billboards. It would be better for the TNI to use persuasive and communicative methods.
