TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Tomy Winata's lawyer Desrizal was reported to have assaulted a judge at the Central Jakarta District Court yesterday, July 18. The Central Jakarta Court has filed an official report of this incident to the police.
A spokesman for the Central Jakarta District Court, Makmur, said via text message yesterday that the attack took place around 16:00 at the Subekti courtroom. At that time, judge HS was reading out the court's verdict for the case tried.
Then, Desrizal stood up from his chair and approached the judges. He then took off his belt and used it to hit judge HS. Two judges, HS and DB, were hit on their heads.
"They were immediately escorted out of the courtroom and taken to the hospital for treatment," Makmur said.
Desrizal was quickly apprehended by court security and then taken to the Central Jakarta Police station.
There is no news yet on why Desrizal attacked the judged. "We cannot say why because he was immediately arrested by the police," Makmur said.
