Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Imparsial researcher Hussein Ahmad criticized the TNI Commander's Telegram Letter Number ST/1221/2021 dated November 5, 2021 regarding the Procedure for Summoning TNI Soldiers by Law Enforcement Officials.
According to Hussein, the telegram signed by Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto at the end of his service as TNI Commander was problematic. Because, there will be military domination of state rules.
"We see this increasingly shows the military's dominance over the country. They pushed their way into the civilian realm, and through the telegram the Commander in Chief did not only regulate the TNI internally, but also externally," said Hussein while talking to Liputan6.com, Wednesday (11/24/2021).
Hussein saw that the telegram interfered too much with the legal process carried out by institutions outside the TNI. Law enforcers outside the TNI must submit and obey the telegram when requesting information or examining members of the Military.
