Dedi emphasized that in this investigation all evidence and data obtained must be scientifically proven because they will be tested in court.
The family of Brigadier General Joshua, through his attorney, reported the alleged premeditated murder to the Police Criminal Investigation Unit, the report was recorded under Number: LP/B/0386/VII/2022/SPKT/Bareskrim Polri, July 18.

While police claim Brigadier Joshua was killed in a shootout with Bharada E, there were seven gunshot wounds to his body. While the incision came from the recoset of the bullet that hit it.
The family’s report was followed up by the Police Criminal Investigation Unit by conducting an initial investigation with the family’s attorney on Wednesday (20/7).
In this case, investigators agreed to the family’s request for a re-autopsy or exhumation of the body for justice.
Regarding the execution, Dedi said it would be carried out as soon as possible because it was related to the condition of the body.
“The faster the exhumation process takes place, the better because for example, if the body has been eating for a long time, the rate of decomposition will be more damaged, the more damaged the autopsy or excavation will be more difficult,” he explained.
Dedi also said that the National Police had communicated with the family lawyer and had invited forensics to be involved outside the Police and the hospital.
“If the lawyers will present ‘expert’ (experienced) people who may be appointed from several hospitals, they are welcome and will improve,” said Dedi. (*)
