MK Receives Setya Novanto`s Request to Review KPK Law

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Constitutional Court spokesperson Fajar Laksono said his office has received a request to review Article 20 A paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Law on the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) filed by House of Representatives (DPR) Speaker Setya Novanto.

“[The request] has been received by the clerk. The completeness of the request will be checked. The requestor will be notified about the results,” Fajar said in Jakarta on Tuesday, November 14.

Fajar revealed that the hearing will be scheduled 14 days after the case registration number is issued.

Fajar said that several documents to be included in the case file include the petition, the power of attorney, and evidence. He said the initial completeness check will last for seven days.

Earlier, Setya took a measure against the KPK legal process by filing a judicial review for the KPK Law. Setya’s lawyer Fredrich Yunadi views that the article contradicts Article 20 A of the 1945 Constitution on impunity for DPR members. Setya’s legal team used the Constitutional Court’s decision on a judicial review of Article 245 paragraph 1 of the Law on Legislative Institutions (MD3 Law) as the basis of their argument.

In the decision, issued in September 2015, the Constitutional Court ordered law enforcers to ask for an approval from the President before summoning and questioning a lawmaker.

“Should there be a pick up by force, we will ask for protection from the President, Police, and Military,” said Setya Novanto's lawyer.
