INDONESIAN AG OPTIMISTIC TO SETTLE CASES OF HUMAN RIGHT VIOLATION
Jakarta, 16 Ramadhan 1436/3 July 2015 (MINA) – The Indonesian Attorney General (AG) HM Prasetyo said he is optimistic he could settle as soon as possible all cases of gross human right violations where his predecessor and all attorney generals before him had failed.
“At least during the term of the present government (all unsettled cases of human right violation would be settled)”, Prasetyo said after a meeting on human right cases with Coordinating Minister for Political Affairs, Law and Security Tedjo Edhy Purdijatno, Military Chief Gen. Moeldoko, Chief of the National Intelligence Agency Marciano Norman, Law and Human rights Minister Yasonna H Laoly here on Thursday.
He said reconciliation attempts in the process of settling the cases should go through phases that the allegation was true of human right violation, Antara News Agency reports as quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA).
“After that a statement and a commitment is made that there would be no more similar types of violation in the future.
“Then the state would apologize to the victims of gross human right violation. It is in one package,” he said.
The Truth Unveiling Committee , which will have 15 members under the president will prepare non judicial settlement, he added.
The committee has the duty to socialize and complete the steps that have been taken by the government in settling the cases, he said.
“(The Committee) prepares settlement non judicially. A lot has been done . Therefore, preparation is made that the people could see. There is socialization, explanation and other things that need to be done together,” he said.
Prasetyos predecessor refused to follow up investigation of human rights cases repeatedly returning reports submitted by the Indonesian Human Right Commission. (T/P010/R04)
