The mishap was first seen on social media, as videos of a man identifying himself as Fahmi Aditya confessed to posting the comment.

But he claimed that he did not write or upload the statement. “My account must have been hacked, as I did not write the comment,” he said.

“Since I am a farmer who work in the field, I leave my phone at home and only use it in the evenings. Only then did I find notifications, one of which said I was a wanted man.”

Though Fahmi denied writing the dcomment, he still took full responsibility for the post. “I apologize to those who lost loved ones on KRI Nanggala-402 for any hurt that the posting may have caused them, as it was put up on my account,” he said.

F and Fahmi face up to six years in jail, if they are found guilty of violating the Electronic and Information Transaction Law.
