MOU for Law Enforcement Agencies.

Many criminal cases in Indonesia has often been handled inappropriately due to lack of coordination among Law Enforcement Agencies.

For example, when the Supreme Court upheld lower Courts verdicts to send Djoko Chandra to jail, the Immigration Office (under Dept of Justice & H.R)  has let him leave the country before the verdict was announced.

The latest one was the Taxman Gayus Tambunan who was able to escape to Singapore before the Police arrest him for involvement in Tax Mafia cases. Thank God the Police was able to take him back.

In order to avoid such disgusting inconveniences, Tempo reported that the Department of Justice and Human Rights, the Attorney General Office and the Police are now preparing a Memorandum of Understanding which will enable them to work in close coordination in the future.

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Three state agencies will sign an MoU on law enforcement procedures. The Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Patrialis Akbar, said that the initiative was taken given that there are many on violations on the process of law enforcement, such as during investigation to prosecution. “Even the Attorney General was surprised when someone explained to him that 1.900 prisoners have not received copies of their court documents,” he said yesterday.

The MoU was drafted by the Police, the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Justice and Human Rights to explore the possibility of working together. Patrialis said that he had communicated with the chief executives of each of the agency.

Any improvement should be welcomed. This MoU may be such a tiny improvement. It will not solve all problems though. Real improvement depends on a general high level of professional ethics and professional skills.

Although the MOU does not guarantee that closer and better coordination will be achieve among the three agencies, however at least they have shown willingness to improve.
The society must keep on watching and reminding those agencies about their commitments.

Some coordination of agencies may help.

You are very right, coordination among law enforcement agencies is inevitable.
