On July 9, 2019 the Supreme Court surprised the nation by accepting and granting the cassation petition submitted by graft convict the former Chairman of the Indonesia’s Bank Restructuring Agency (BPPN) Syafruddin Arsyad “Syaf” Temenggung. Syaf, as we all know was found guilty by the Corruption Court of the Central Jakarta District Court for his involvement in the corruption scheme related to the disbursement of Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) to Bank Dagang Nasional Indonesia (BDNI).

Many have since encouraged the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to file a Reconsideration (PK). The question now is, can the KPK file for a PK?
