Yusri said that SS gave 15 million rupiahs ($1,014) to FI in a request to bewitch the victim with the help of a shaman.

“SS already paid the 15 million rupiahs to cast the black magic spell. But it did not work and in June SS asked FI to kill Hsu,” he said.

Meanwhile, Jakarta Police Chief Inspector General Nana Sudjana in a statement on August 12 said the perpetrators entered Hsu’s house at around 3:30pm after a housemaid left the house.

They could enter the house after acting as tax officers as it was suggested by SS. According to SS, Hsu has not paid taxes and owed nine billion rupiahs ($609,000).

The perpetrators acted as if they came to collect the tax money. Hsu was stabbed to death at a toilet in his house, police said.
