From the results of the direct examination, Ganjar said the situation was quite good after seeing one by one the faces and conditions of Indonesian citizens. “I confirmed there, actually not in captivity and I saw her face. Nothing, sorry, mistress (act) it no exists. That someone who is sick is still working and so on, that’s what I asked for assessment,” said Ganjar.
