Setya Novanto Pretrial Motion to Become Null and Void  

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Kusno, the sole judge presiding over Setya Novanto’s pretrial hearing, said that he will declare the pretrial motion null and void once the Corruption Court begins the electronic ID cards (e-KTP) graft trial.

He referred to Article 82 (1) (d) of the Criminal Procedures Code (KUHAP) as amended by the Constitutional Court ruling No. 102/PUU-XIII/2015, which holds that a pretrial motion will become null and void once the trial on the subject matter challenged by the plaintiff begins.

Kusno said that he has made the statement in the hope that there will be no more debates between the plaintiff and the defendant.

The first hearing of Setya Novanto’s pretrial motion yesterday saw the plaintiff made his case. Setya questioned the legal basis for the Corruption Eradication Commission’s (KPK) decision to name him a suspect.

Meanwhile, the KPK yesterday sent Setya Novanto’s dossier to the Corruption Court with a view that the court would commence the first e-KTP trial hearing before the South Jakarta District Court issues the ruling on the pretrial motion.

Judge Kusno at the end of the trial hearing yesterday decided that the ruling will be issued at the earliest on Thursday afternoon next week. “Or Friday,” he said Thursday, Dec. 7.

Setya Novanto is challenging the KPK’s decision to rename him a suspect in the graft case that caused Rp2.3 trillion in state losses in the project worth Rp5.84 trillion. The KPK earlier named him as a suspect in the same case that saw the latter filed a pretrial motion and came out victorious.
