Two months ago we reported that the North Sumatera Regional Police (Polda Sumut) had named one Musa Idi Shah (or Idishah – familiarly known as Dody), the brother of the current Vice Governor of North Sumatera one Musa Rajek Shah (or Rajekshah – familiarly known as Ijeck), a suspect of violation in the process of conversion of protected forests land into palm plantations. Last week, the police escalated the status of the case’s investigation on Ijeck into inquisition, although Ijeck is still a witness today. The police scheduled an examination several days after the inquisition process was announced but Ijeck did not answer the summon. The police said they would schedule another examination soon.
