Remission for Corruption, Illegal Drug and Terror Criminals

In connection with the Eid Ul-Fitr celebration, the government has been very kind to Criminals who were sentenced to jail by the Courts of Law for their involvement in Corruption, Illegal Drugs and Terrorism.

Tribune News reported that the government has granted Remission (Jail Sentence Discount) to 235 Corruption Criminals (8 released), 6,793 Illegal Drug Criminals (65 released) and 36 Terror Criminals.

This is the second time in one month that the government granted Remission to Corruption Criminals after it granted to many other Corruption Criminals during Independence Day on 17 August 2011.

The granting of Remission has been criticized by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). Rakyat Merdeka quoted Johan Budi of KPK as saying that grating of Remission to Corruption Criminals should be restricted considering that Corruption is an extraordinary crime therefore should not be treated ordinarily.

I hope that in the future the government would not grant anymore Remission to Corruption, Illegal Drug and Terror Criminals, so that they would really learn to obey the laws.

Perhaps slightly more flexible than you are I generally speaking do agree with you :).

However I believe in some circumstances there is one convincing practical reason for large scale reductions of the terms of imprisonment: dramatically overcrowded prisons (which usually is the consequence of indiscriminate criminalization of the use of - soft- drugs).

@Wisata Murah,

Kalau korupsi jadi profesi GAWAT!
Saya sering dengar orang berkata ingin menjadi pegawai negeri walau gaji kecil tapi ada kesempatan cari uang extra yang jauh lebih besar.

@Iskaruji,
Ariel cannot be in the list because he is not a corruptor.

@Colson,
As I mentioned in my comment on your blog I agree that drug users should be rehabilitated, not just jailed, perhaps they only spend one month in jail followed by rehabilitation. This could be a solution for over crowded jails.

menggunakan kata pengampunan lebih baik dari menggunakan kata pengurangan hukum

*tapi hendaknya mereka tidak mendapatkan itu setiap tahun krn TIDAK dapat memberikan mereka efek jera (tidak mengulangi lagi perbuatan melanggar hukum)

@R10,
Yang jadi pertanyaan adalah apakah koruptor, pengedar narkoba dan teroris layak untuk diampuni atas tindakan mereka ?
