The warden of Cipinang Penitentiary, Abdul Ghani, has revealed that, as former Jakarta governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama might face threats in the East Jakarta prison, he decided on Wednesday to entrust Ahok to the police's Mobile Brigade Command detention centre (Mako Brimob), Depok.
"The reason is his safety. His life may be threatened," Abdul said, as quoted by kompas.com on Thursday.
Abdul said the threats might come from other inmates.
However, he declined to specify the potential threats against Ahok.
