Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Not a few Indonesian celebrities are involved in online gambling promotion cases, one of them is Wulan Guritno.
According to the Minister of Communication and Informatics (Menkominfo) Budi Arie, cases like this will be dealt with by law enforcement officials. Only after that, if possible, Kominfo will build it. In Wulan’s case, his party will make him an anti-online gambling ambassador.
“Let the process be handled by law enforcement, the police summoned him, we are from the police. If we can, we can just build him up, become anti-online gambling ambassadors,” Budi said when met at the Senayan Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Monday (4/9/2023).
“He said in the media that it’s an online game, it’s not just about him, but other artists too,” he added briefly.
Previously, the National Police Criminal Investigation Directorate General Brigadier General Adi Vivid revealed that his party would only send a summons to Wulan Guritno after the investigators deemed sufficient data collected.
“The plan is for next week,” said Brigadier General Adi Vivid, Thursday (31/8), quoted from Detikcom.
At present, investigators are still conducting in-depth investigations regarding several other public figures who have participated in promoting online gambling.
“Currently we are conducting monitoring, profiling and data collection first,” said Adi.
Meanwhile, Wulan Guritno claimed that he was actually the victim in this case. Bucie Lee’s management representative said the artist thought the content being promoted was an online game, not a gambling site.
More than that, Wulan Guritno also didn’t suspect anything because previously many other artists had done the same promotion.
“Mbak Wulan was a victim because she received information that it was an online game being promoted by lots of other big artists.” he said.
