Residents of RW 10 Saladara, Cirebon City Hold a Petition and Joint Prayer in Support of Pegi Setiawan and Seven Convicts in Vina and Eky Murder Case

Hundreds of residents are demanding justice for Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts in the murder case of Vina and Eky.

The residents, who are from RW10 Saladara Village, Karyamulya Village, Kesambi District, Cirebon City, held a petition and joint prayer for the release of Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts. The petition took place on Jalan Sadara (Jl Perjuangan), right in front of the house of former RT Chairman Abdul Pasren, on Tuesday, June 25, 2024.

Abdul Pasren is the key witness who is currently still missing. Before participating in the joint prayer, dozens of local youths took part in a walk while unfurling banners towards the location of the joint prayer. The banners read, “They are not murderers”, “Mr. RT, let’s be honest”, “Warning Wanted Mr. Pasren” and “Death of justice in our beloved country”.

“This is an action by the youth of Karyamulya village to show concern for the fate of our friends who are prisoners in the murder case of Vina and Eky,” said local youth Adam to radarcirebon.com . Agam emphasized that the youth of Saladara Village asked that the seven convicts and Pegi Setiawan be immediately released.

“We are concerned, this case is too complicated. I want it to be resolved quickly because yesterday the police were not present at the pre-trial schedule, what’s the matter,” he said.

Meanwhile, Basari, as chairman of RW 10 Saladara Village, Karyamulya Village, Kesambi District, Cirebon City, asked Pasren, the former RT chairman (2016) to tell the truth.

“For 8 years this case has not been resolved. Thank God, with the film Vina, everything is strengthened that justice comes from Allah.”

“We ask the parties handling this case to show that our citizens do not do these very barbaric things,” he said.

Still in the same place, Kartini, Pegi Setiawan’s biological mother, who was also present at the action, felt touched by the number of people supporting and praying for her child.

“Alhamdulillah, with everyone’s support and holding a joint prayer for Pegi Setiawan, our family and I would like to say thank you very much.”

“With this support and prayers, hopefully Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts can be released,” he said.

Sugianti Irianti, Chair of Pegi Setiawan’s Legal Team, expressed similar sentiments and really appreciated the joint prayer and petition of support for Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts.

“The public stated that Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts were not the perpetrators of Vina and Eky’s murder,” he said.

Based on radarcirebon.com monitoring , during the activity, Jl Saladara (Jl Perjuangan), which is located not far from SMPN 11, was closed to all vehicles. Banners reading support for Pegi Setiawan and the seven convicts were visible along Jl Saladara (Jalan Perjuangan).

In fact, sympathetic residents who took part in the joint prayer event voluntarily put their signatures on a 50 meter long white cloth stretched out on the side of the road. They also conveyed a message that the seven convicts should be released if they are not proven guilty.

The petition also calls for law enforcement and the release of Pegi Setiawan, a suspect in the Vina and Eky case who residents believe is innocent.
