Evidence enough to name Ariel suspect: police chief

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Police Chief General Bambang Hendarso Danuri said police had collected enough evidence to name singer Muhammad Nazriel Irham alias Aril a suspect in a porn video case.

The police chief made the remarks after opening a seminar on national resilience here on Tuesday but he refused to disclose the evidence that had led police to name Ariel a suspect.

He neither mentioned the articles the police would use to charge Ariel but explained that investigators would look into the case based on the laws on anti-pornography, information and electronics transactions and public crimes.

"Investigators of course already looked into the aspects of violations and evidence (whether it was enough to name him)," the police chief said.

Earlier, police had officially named Peterpan vocalist Nazril Irham alias Ariel a suspect in a case of sex videos that circulated and caused an uproar in the public.
"Ariel has become a suspect and will be charged under the Law on Pornography," said Head of Criminal Investigation Department of of the Police Headquarters, Commissioner General Ito Sumardi said through his cellular telephone here on Tuesday.

Ito said the investigators had also detained Ariel since Tuesday at a cell of the Bareskrim.

He did not explained the chronology of naming him a suspect.
A steamy sex video involving a man looking like Ariel and a woman resembling artist Luna Maya as well as a video involving the same actor with another woman looking like artist Cut Tari, sparked uproar as they were circulated in the Internet.
