An important and engaging article about the innocent cleaner’s, written by former JIS teacher Kristen Julius.
“We need the world to join us in asking that the truth about this tragedy be told. While two innocent men have been exonerated, there are still lima lagi (five more) who need their good names and honest lives restored.”
Excerpt from the article…
“The most outrageous information I learned from the interviews was that while employed by ISS, Zainal, as well as the late Azwar, worked on the JIS Cilandak (Middle and High School) campus, and not on the Pondok Indah campus where the alleged assaults occurred. When I asked the difficult question as to why he had confessed to the charges, he replied, “I was tortured until I couldn’t bear it anymore. I didn’t want to die.” He broke down and signed the papers with which the police presented him, even though he didn’t know what sodomy, the crime to which he was forced to confess, meant.”
