‘Misleading hearing’: Novel’s advocacy team skeptical over acid attack trial

first_imgRead also: ‘Someone influential’: Novel Baswedan tells court he has name of person behind his attackThe court indicted in March two police officers who were allegedly involved in the acid attack against Novel on April 11, 2017.Prosecutor Fedrik Adhar charged the defendants, low-ranking officers of Depok’s Kelapa Dua mobile brigade Ronny Bugis and Rahmat Kadir Mahulete, under Article 355 of the Criminal Code on premeditated ill treatment, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 years’ imprisonment upon conviction.According to the indictment, the two defendants claimed that the assault was due to a grudge over Novel’s work as an investigator for the KPK, which has sent powerful state officials, including top police generals such as Insp. Gen. Djoko Susilo, to prison. The two perceived this as a form of resistance against the National Police.However, Novel told journalists earlier this month that he doubted the defendants’ motive in carrying out the attack.“Low-ranking police officers usually live a simple life, which means that they are people who are not using their authority to seek profit or wealth,” Novel told reporters, “If the defendants have a grudge because I am fighting corruption, I don’t think it makes sense.”Novel’s advocacy team called on the Supreme Court’s supervisory board and the Judicial Commission to directly monitor what it claimed was a “misleading hearing” to ensure that the proceedings remain impartial and fair so that the true identity of the mastermind could be brought to light.Furthermore, it also urged the National Police to refrain from providing legal assistance to the two defendants to prevent any conflicts of interest. The advocacy team for Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) senior investigator Novel Baswedan has expressed skepticism over the legal proceedings surrounding his acid attack case, claiming that the hearing had been compromised by factual discrepancies and oversight from the start.The group argued that the trial for the case, which saw four hearings at the North Jakarta District Court, failed to connect the attack to Novel’s work with the antigraft body and viewed the assault as a random act of violence instead.“In their indictment, the prosecutors only regarded the acid attack against Novel Baswedan as an ordinary assault that is unrelated to [Novel’s work] and [part of] systematic efforts to weaken the KPK,” the group said in a statement on Sunday. Topics :center_img It said the indictment contradicted the results of the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the National Police’s fact-finding efforts, which established a connection between the acid attack and Novel’s handling of major graft cases, such as a bribery case involving businessman Basuki Hariman and former Constitutional Court justice Patrialis Akbar, as well as the electronic ID graft case involving former Golkar Party chairman Setya Novanto.“The indictment did not mention any information as to who ordered the attack on Novel Baswedan. The prosecutors in charge of the investigation could only intend to [indict] the perpetrators [as they presented themselves on the field],” the team said, adding that the prosecutor had stopped short of mentioning the possible involvement of any “mastermind” in the attack.The advocacy team further argued that there was a deliberate attempt to remove crucial evidence and witnesses from the court, complicating ongoing efforts to shed some light on the truth.“[…] key witnesses’ statements to the National Police and Komnas HAM were not presented to the court,” the team said, adding that it was possible that a number of witnesses were intimidated into staying silent.last_img read more

Angels Offseason Options: Mike Moustakas

first_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros (This is the latest in a series of quick profiles on players who fit for the Angels to add over the winter. They are purely “informed speculation,” based on what we know about the Angels’ roster needs along with General Manager Billy Eppler’s preferences and history. We’ll have a new one every weekday, until the GM Meetings, which are the unofficial start of the hot stove season.)MIKE MOUSTAKAS, 3B, Milwaukee BrewersThe basics: A product of Chatsworth High, Moustakas came up as a power-hitting third baseman with the Kansas City Royals, with four seasons of 20 homers. He was widely connected to the Angels as a free agent last winter, but he ended up re-signing with Kansas City and getting traded to the Brewers midseason. He will play most of next season at age 30.2018 season: Moustakas hit .251 with a .315 on-base percentage and 28 homers.Contract status: Moustakas has a mutual option worth $15 million, which means he’s probably going to be a free agent. Last season he made $5.5 million. Why he makes sense: The Angels are not likely to have the room in their payroll or roster for a premium infielder who can only play one position, but Moustakas played a few games at first base last season. If he’s willing and able to play over there more regularly, or even primarily, he could be a good fit for the Angels. The Angels could use one more big bat, preferably who hits left-handed, and if he can play first base and another position, that allows him to fill in when Albert Pujols is not at first, but also be somewhere on the field when Pujols is. The transition to first base should be doable, as long as Moustakas is willing. If Moustakas could play first and third, he’d basically do what the Angels hoped Luis Valbuena would do. A Southern California native, he might have some incentive to do what it takes to fit with the Angels. Another left-handed power bat in the lineup would help balance the roster.Why he doesn’t: He is going to cost some money that the Angels would probably prefer to save for their pitching, since they believe they have enough young players with the offensive upside to give them what they need. Also, his career on-base percentage is only average. Defensively, he’d be a work in progress at first.Previous players: C J.T.
