JAKARTA - Former Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission or the KPK, Firli Bahuri appointed a constitutional law expert, Fahri Bachmid, as his legal adviser to face a pretrial lawsuit at the South Jakarta District Court. Firli Bahuri was originally filed a second pretrial lawsuit regarding his determination as a suspect in the alleged extortion case against the former Minister of Agriculture, Syahrul Yasin Limpo. "Firli Bahuri based on a special power of attorney dated December 29, 2023, appointed Fahri Bachmid as an advocate to represent his legal interests in order to submit a pretrial application," Fahri said in his statement, Wednesday, January 24. The submission of the second pretrial lawsuit, said Fahri, refers to the decision of the Constitutional Court (MK) number 21/PUU-XII/2014, with important considerations including the provisions of Article 1 paragraph (3) of the 1945 Constitution concerning the principles ‘ due process of law ’. This principle is one of the embodiments of human rights recognition in the criminal justice process into a principle that must be upheld by all parties, especially by law enforcement agencies. "The investigation and investigation process must fulfill two sufficient pieces of evidence by referring to the provisions in Article 184 of the Criminal Procedure Code. If this is not implemented in making a decision to make a person a suspect, then the determination will have illegal implications according to the law," he said. On that basis, Firli Bahuri filed a pretrial lawsuit for the second time. Hopefully, it can get justice related to the handling of the alleged extortion and / or gratification case. "For this reason, we believe that the second pretrial submission effort is in response as well as a legal and constitutional endeavor through judicial channels, so that substantive justice can be realized," said Fahri. Meanwhile, the inaugural trial of the pre-trial lawsuit filed by Firli Bahuri will be held at the South Jakarta District Court on January 30. Based on the Case Tracking Information System or SIPP of the South Jakarta District Court, the lawsuit is registered with case number 17/Pid.Pra/2024/PN JKT.SEL. "(The lawsuit regarding) whether or not the determination of the suspect is valid," wrote SIPP of the South Jakarta District Court.

As a reminder, Firli Bahuri was named a suspect in the alleged extortion and gratification case against the former Minister of Agriculture, Syahrul Yasin Limpo, based on the results of a case title conducted on Wednesday, November 22.
