A narrative journalism on murder of Munir Said Thalib, Indonesian prominent rights activist. He was poisoned with arsenic on a flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam on
September 7, 2004.
The book narrates Munir's long flight, the pursuing of justice in the court rooms, and the author's in-depth interviews with Pollycarpus, an Indonesian pilot who was convicted to 20 years' jail for the murder, in Cipinang dan Sukamiskin prison.
The police investigations found facts that link the murder with individuals in Indonesian secret service. The trials (2005-2009) involved four defendants, and the last defendant was Muchdi Pr, former Deputi V of Indonesian secret service, who was found not guilty by the supreme court. But, it is not the end of the story since the attorney planned Peninjauan Kembali to the verdict.
The book gives me many details about what happened to Munir during the flight, how law officers worked, how the conspiracy worked (though not explicitly) and what kind of person is Pollycarpus. The author must had been very serious in doing research for the book. Congratulations! Chapter one is so touching...
