Nazaruddin is Not a Hero

One thing I like about today's celebration of Independence Day is that most of the mass media are not reporting about the Nazaruddin case for the time being.

This is good for me because I am beginning to be bored at the behaviors of politicians who tried to build public opinion as if Nazaruddin is a  hero and the law enforcement agency, especially the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is evil.

While actually KPK has named Nazaruddin as Suspect in corruption cases including the misuse of fund for development of athlete building in Palembang, South Sumatera, who ran away to other countries, and was caught by the Interpol in Columbia. who later on hand him over to our law enforcement agencies.

First there was the lawyer OC Kaligis who was very angry because he failed to get asylum for Nazaruddin in Colombia therefore he should be returned to Indonesia. Besides, O.C Kaligis was also angry because he was not allowed to accompany Nazaruddin during the flight from Colombia to Jakarta.

I can understand why he is angry because as a lawyer he has been paid to do his very best to defend his client, but to advise him to take asylum in Colombia (and evade Indonesian laws) ?
However, I agree that Nazaruddin should be accompanied by a lawyer during the 38 hours flight.

Then there was the members of the House of Representatives who forcefully entered the Mobile Brigade Headquarters where Nazaruddin is detained.even though not during visiting hours.
Due his his status a member of the House of Representatives has not been revoked, other member may visit him, but should honor the regulation at the place of detention.

Then there was those politicians who demand that Nazaruddin should be protected by the Witness and Victim Protection Institution, which is unreasonable because Nazaruddin is neither a Witness nor a Victim, but a Suspect. 

Considering the above, I hope that KPK would always treat Nazaruddin according to the laws and regulations.

I absolutely agree with you. This country has been managed by people who like to enrich themselves. Let's pray they no longer become our leader

Many people in Indonesia share your feeling about Nazaruddin.

Thank you very much for your support for my country.

You are right. Let the KPK do it's job undisturbed.

However often politicians of a certain category behave weird and theatrically in cases of moral importance with the fishy smell of corruption. Especially if they are afraid they might get implicated...

Nazarudin juga berhak didampingi pengacara, agar Nazarudin memiliki keberanian untuk berbicara

@Colson,
You are also right, some politicians behave weird and theatrically in corruption cases. Maybe because they are afraid they might be implicated.

@R10,
Menurut KUHAP setiap orang yang dituntut hukuman lebuh dari 5 tahun harus didampingi pengacara.

I agree... Just because he has given information about several people linked to corruption cases doesn't make him a hero
