Since April 1st, 2011, Twitter account @Triomacan2000 has frequently tweeted about a range of topics, from corruption among Indonesian government officials to the conspiracy of “oil mafia,” as he calls it. The Twitter account claimed to leak the untold stories of an Indonesian political scandal. The account has reached the status of Twitter political celebrity acting like a Twitter version of Wikileaks. A site with the same name TrioMacan2000.net reported that Syahganda Nainggolan (chairman of the board of directors for public affairs research body Sabang-Marauke Circle), Abdul Rasyid (coordinating ministry of economic affairs staff), and Raden Nuh (ex-director of privatization of state-owned enterprises PT. Berdikari) were the people behind Triomacan2000.
Abdul Rasyid objects to the allegation, and has filed a police report for defamation against the site. According to Kompas.com, Abdul said at the Metro Jaya Police Headquarters today:
There are three things that are in my report. Firstly, that I was mentioned as one of the administrators of triomacan2000.net site. Secondly, that I've enjoyed the proceeds of corruption. Thirdly, site said that I've been fired as managing director of Kemayoran area.
He denies all of these, and demanded for the site to be closed. He said that the news has disturbed his personal life and family. If the news continues to spread, he is worried that it will affect his career.
Together with his lawyer, Dedi Kurniadi, Abdul brought police evidence like print outs of Triomacan2000.net screenshots which contain his biography. Abdul insists that he wants a thorough investigation regarding this matter.
The site stated that Abdul had benefitted from dirty money and had been fired from his post as managing director of one of the regions in Kemayoran. The allegation was written on last Friday, September 21st, 2012. But Abdul just discovered it on Sunday. He wants the police to speed up the investigation.
Triomacan2000, who identified itself as Ade Ayu S. (presumably a pseudonym), has over 130,000 followers on Twitter. This is not the first lawsuit for @Triomacan2000. On June 2012, Junior Attorney General for Supervision Marwan Effendy filed a police report against Muhammad Fajriska Mirza who allegedly under the @Triomacan2000 account accused him of embezzling Rp 104 billion ($11.02 million).
The @Triomacan2000 Twitter account tweets today that it has no correlation with the site Triomacan2000.net. The pseudonym Twitter account is now busy campaigning against Jakarta’s governor and vice governor candidate, Joko Widodo and Ahok.
