On September 29, 2017, the sole presiding judge who examined the pre-trial lawsuit filed by Setya Novanto ruled in favor of Setya Novanto and subsequently declared unlawful the process by which Novanto was named a graft suspect. The judge also ordered the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to stop their investigation into Novanto. This is not the KPK’s first defeat, which makes us wonder whether suspicion should be placed entirely on the pretrial process, or whether the KPK also played a role in this crushing defeat.To subscribe please click here
