Muhammadiyah Youth Ask  For Setnov Immediate Arrest

JAKARTA (Jurnalislam.com) – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has again appointed Chairman of the House of Representatives Setya Novanto as a suspect in the case of E-KTP corruption. Faisal, Chairman of PP Muhammadiyah Youth for Legal Affairs said that the detention of Setya Novanto (Setnov) for the second time conducted by the KPK is right.

“The most appropriate step right now after Setnov is set to become a suspect is immediate detention. This detention is important to ensure the smoothness of the investigation process. Do not let the KPK make a mistake for the second time. Immediate detention for the sake of the investigation, “said Faisal, Monday (6/11/2017).

Moreover, said Faisal, Setnov several times lost to be called KPK under the pretext of examination must first require the President’s permission based on Article 245 of the MD3 Act.

“Obviously this legal maneuver is not sufficiently grounded. Because in the MD3 Law the permit does not apply to special crimes. It is clear if corruption is included in the classification of specific criminal acts. The KPK must immediately detain setnov for the sake of investigation. The status of the suspect setnov is reason enough to make the detention, “he concluded.
