JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – BIN Spokesman Henry Hari Purwanto stressed that the National Intelligence Agency has the responsibility to create security.
Wawan said, BIN's duties and functions were contained in Law No. 17 of 2011 on State Intelligence.
He said this in response to the dissolution of massive action # 2019 Changing the president in Riau who was attended by Neno Warisman.
"BIN, the goal is to ensure the security of the Republic of Indonesia," said Wawan during a press conference in the South Jakarta region, Pancoran, Monday (27-08-2018).
Wawan denied that his party was not neutral in resolving the massive action # 2019 Changing the president and banning Neno Warisman from attending the Music Tour event entitled "# 2019 Change President" in Pekanbaru.
"The existence of BIN must exist on all fronts to secure the Republic of Indonesia, not bias, we are neutral, whoever wins our election as a state institution to secure it," Wawan said.
