It has been three years since we were exposed to the internal dispute between the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and their own prosecutor, i.e., the former Chief of Maluku High Prosecutors’ Office (Kajati Maluku) Chuck Suryosumpeno. Prosecutor Chuck was demoted in 2015 for allegedly embezzling the assets recovered from the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) case worth Rp1.9 trillion. Chuck fought back and filed several lawsuits demanding his old position. But Chuck’s fight ended on the stage of cassation with the Assembly of Cassation of the Supreme Court rejecting his petition. After that, Chuck was officially dismissed from his position and sacked from the institution. In October 2018, the Supreme Court’s Assembly of Reconsideration miraculously decided in favor of Chuck and ordered the AGO to reinstate his position. But instead of following the order, the AGO named Chuck a suspect on the mentioned case.
