Walpri Deputy Governor of West Java Persecutes Garut Residents
Four youths from Garut reported an unscrupulous member of the National Police for allegedly committing acts of abuse and intimidation. The police officer also claimed to be an aide to the Deputy Governor of West Java.

Deni explained that the abuse and intimidation were carried out when his son with the initials LL and three of his colleagues HAF, BB and HA were being investigated in relation to a case being handled by the Bandung Wetan Police.
“But then this person came, who claimed to be the Deputy Governor’s adjutant. His rank was Bripka with the initials US,” he said.
According to Deni, this member of the National Police intimidated the four youths aged in their 20s. The person is even said to have shown a gun to the teenagers.
