'Hot Potato' in Djoko Tjandra's Inquiry Rights
The House of Representatives (DPR) is considering the use of an inquiry right to investigate the escape Bank Bali case fugitive, Djoko Tjandra. Member of DPR's Legal Commission from the United Development Party Faction (FPPP), Arsul Sani, said that he would propose the formation of a special committee for Djoko Tjandra's inquiry. This inquiry right will investigate the roles of prosecutors, police, and government officials suspected of assisting Djoko Tjandra's escape.
According to Arsul, DPR will invite the police, the Attorney General's Office, and the Ministry of Law and Human Rights to ask for an explanation about Djoko Tjandra. DPR, he said, saw indications of a new crime in the Djoko Tjandra case involving law enforcement. "Such as hiding fugitives, making or entering false information, and allegations of bribery and corruption," he said.
