Suara.com – Member of Commission III DPR, Cucun Ahmad Syamsurijal asked the Deputy Minister of Law and Human Rights (Wamenkumham). Edward Omar Syarief Hiariej to focus more on working rather than making statements that trigger uproar.
This followed Edward’s statement, who considered the death penalty appropriate for the former Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Edhy Prabowo and former Social Minister Juliari P Batubara.
“The focus is on the work of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. Do not often make controversial statements,” Cucun said on Wednesday (17/2/2021).
Cucun reminded Edward not to make a scene, let alone make statements outside his authority as an assistant to President Jokowi. According to Cucun, the matter of punishment for Edhy and Juliari will be a problem that is resolved by the Corruption Eradication Commission through the Corruption Court.
“As a partner, the Ministry of Law and Human Rights reminded the Deputy Minister not to just talk, not his authority and not to make an opinion on a case that is being handled by another institution. Let the competent authorities in the KPK and the Corruption Court decide,” said Cucun.
Previously, Edward said that Edhy Prabowo and Juliari deserved to be prosecuted for the death penalty.
The two former ministers in the era of President Joko Widodo were arrested in an arrest operation by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
This was conveyed by Edward in the National seminar on “Critical Analysis of the Direction of Formation and Law Enforcement in the Pandemic Era” on the Youtube channel of the Faculty of Law, Gajah Mada University, on Tuesday (16/2/2021).
“For me, these two former ministers (Edhy Prabowo and Juliari P Batubara) committed acts of corruption and were subsequently hit by the KPK OTT. For me they deserve to be prosecuted under the provisions of Article 2 paragraph 2 of the Law on Corruption Eradication of Corruption which amounts to death penalty,” said Edward.
