Controversy continues on the suggestion that the Sixth President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) and the chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) K.H. Ma’ruf Amin may have once had a phone conversation to discuss the release of the blasphemy fatwa on the Governor of Jakarta Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama. Ahok’s lawyer Humphrey Djemat was the one who brought up the suggestion while cross-examining witness Ma’ruf Amin in Ahok’s blasphemy trial. It looks like Ahok’s lawyer want to prove that his client is merely a victim of high-level political plot, and that the phone call between SBY-Ma’ruf Amin is the key to revealing said plot. SBY, on the other hand, immediately played victim and claimed that he may have been illegally wiretapped. So who will come out triumphant in this battle? Will Ahok’s team follow through on the suggestion that there’s a plot targeting their client, or will SBY’s spin succeed in turning the situation in his favor?To subscribe please click here
