Jakarta (ANTARA) – Lawyer Nico Senjaya assessed that the East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) Regional Police officers were suspected of having mistakenly handled the case of procurement of shallot seeds in Malacca Regency in 2018 because the Termination of Investigation Order (SP3) had been issued without any new evidence.
“This violates the Regulation of the Supreme Court (PERMA) RI No. 4 of 2016, which states that cases with SP3 can be reopened and must be accompanied by two new pieces of evidence that have nothing to do with the previous evidence,” said Nico Senjaya in Jakarta, Thursday.
Nico said that he had sent a letter of complaint against the NTT Police at the Kupang District Court, but the local Police did not have good faith when mediation was carried out.
He added that his party was a lawyer from Baharuddin Tony, in the 2018 shallot seed procurement project as many as 180 tons of superior seeds from Brebes, Central Java.
Nico said the shallot seeds were purchased with good quality, according to specifications, and without any problems and had harvested more than 2,000 tons.
However, the procurement of onion seeds is not only in 2018, but also in 2017 and 2019 with the same budget, but why is it only in 2018,” he said.
He added that he would continue to fight so that his client would get justice, so that the NTT Police would prioritize professionalism in handling cases.
“We ask for protection from the National Police Chief and Komnas HAM,” said Nico, who was accompanied by other attorneys, Robertus Salu, Egiardus Bana, Dandy Limardi and Leo Cahya Trisaputra.
According to him, the most important corruption case is the alleged loss to the state based on the results of an audit by the Indonesian Supreme Audit Agency (BPK).
Meanwhile, the NTT Regional Police investigated the case based on the results of an audit from the NTT Province Financial and Development Supervisory Agency (BPKP).
As a result of this action, Nico’s client was imprisoned for 120 days, and asked the National Police Chief for justice in this case.
The alleged case of shallot seeds was reportedly taken over by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) due to supervision.
