Skalanews - High Priest of Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) Habib Rizieq Shihab is known to seek protection from the United Nations Human Rights Commission on the case of a pornographic video chat ringing him and Firza Husein.

In response, Head of Public Relations Division Inspector General (Pol) Setyo Wasisto said it invited anyone to seek protection from the United Nation.

"I think if they want to ask for United Nations assistance is their right, we also have to respect," said Setyo at Police Headquarters, South Jakarta, Thursday (18/5).

Rizieq's lawyer Kapitra Ampera told a press conference at AQL Islamic Center in Tebet, South Jakarta, Tuesday (16/5) that Rizieq will take the case to an international forum.

"He has met with commissioners from the United Nations of Human Rights and this will be followed up after Ramadhan," said Kapitra.

Rizieq has met the deputy commissioner of the international institution in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Furthermore, Rizieq will travel to Europe to visit the United Nation headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

Meanwhile, related to the request of Blue Notice or request for assistance to seek the existence of a person and his activity through Interpol, said Setyo his side has not received any further report from the investigator whether the request has been sent or not to Interpol in Lyon, France.

"It is the authority of the investigator to request the assistance of Interpol center in Lyon, France, of course through the national central bureau in Jakarta," said Setyo. (Frida Astuti/bus)
