Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Police confirmed that actress Wulan Guritno will be questioned regarding online gambling next week. The examination was postponed from what was previously to be carried out last Thursday (7/8/2023).
Karo Penmas, National Police Public Relations Division, Brigadier General Ahmad Ramadhan, explained that Wulan had canceled her examination because she was sick. Based on what the legal advisor said, the 42 year old woman will appear next week.
“Regarding plans for an examination or asking for clarification from sister WG, it was carried out yesterday. However, the reason given by her legal advisor was that sister WG was not well so she could not attend. Tell the investigators to provide information next week,” said Ahmad, Friday (8/9/2023) .
However, for the exact time, Ahmad said it depended on Wulan’s health. “When is the time, related to WG’s health, to be willing to be questioned,” he said.
Wulan was summoned because he had promoted online gambling. However, he admitted that he was a victim.
Wulan said he didn’t know the content he was promoting was online gambling. Because according to him the content is usually an online game.
Based on his account, there are no suspicions about the platform being promoted. Because there are many other artists who carry out the same promotions.
“Mbak Wulan was a victim because she received information that it was an online game promoted by many other big artists,” said Director of Cyber Crime Bareskrim Polri, Brigadier General Adi Vivid last week.
Meanwhile, Minister of Communication and Information Budi Arie also highlighted Wulan’s involvement in promoting online gambling. He said he would not interfere in legal matters processed by the police.
He also invited all Indonesian citizens to become anti-online gambling ambassadors. People who do not understand the dangers can be trained.
“I don’t know Wulan Guritno. I mean, all artists, celebrities, all influencers and so on can be anti-online gambling ambassadors. Not a certain figure,” he said, when met at the 2023 ASEAN Summit media center, Wednesday (6/9 /2023).
