“After the pledge, then terrorist convicts returned to the Republic of Indonesia with its national Bhinneka Tunggal Ika [unity in diversity] motto. They will also improve their awareness to defend the country,” Sayudi said, as reported by Antara.
He expressed his appreciation to chief wardens at the two correctional facilities for their development program that results in these convicts to, in the end, pledge their loyalty to Indonesia.
