Indonesian Military to Charge Me With Crime for Reporting Assassinations, According to Text Scroll Running on News Channel TV One

The Indonesian news channel TV One is running text scrolls on their screen which say that the country's US-backed armed forces, the TNI, is either planning to or has already filed criminal charges against me.

The crime, the scrolls say, consists of "defiling the good name of TNI."

In today's Indonesia it can be a crime to report assassinations, but, given that no Generals have gone to prison for such murders, it is not treated as a crime to commit them.
