[NEWS] Haris Azhar: “I will not remain quiet”

Lokataru Executive Director and staunch rights activist Haris Azhar, officially charged with a defamation case against Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs and Investments Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, vows not to remain silent nor idle amidst the charges.

“I personally want to say that I will not remain quiet in this case. I will be very provocative, not just to defend my case but I will take measures to be provocative,” said the director of the human rights foundation in a virtual press conference on Sunday, 20 March 2022. Not only has he announced his stand in this case, Azhar plans to file a report in return against Minister Luhut Pandjaitan in what he believes is his bid to uphold justice.
