Police submit Ari's dossiers

JAKARTA (JP): Police submitted the dossiers on the detained grandchild of former president Soeharto, Ari Haryo Wibowo, or Ari Sigit as he is familiarly known, to the Jakarta Prosecutors' Office on Monday, an officer said.

Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Anton Bachrul Alam told reporters here on Monday that the dossiers were handed over without the suspect because the latter was still undergoing medical treatment at Kramat Jati Police Hospital in East Jakarta for breathing problems.

Anton said Ari was charged under Emergency Law No. 12/1951 on the possession of firearms and ammunition, which carries a maximum penalty of 20-years imprisonment. (emf)
