The Sarpin Effect

Book reads: Pretrial Hearing

The 'Sarpin Effect' as it is now being called, after a controversial ruling by South Jakarta District Court judge Sarpin Rizaldi who declared in a pretrial hearing that that the Corruption Eradication Commission's naming of national police chief nominee Comr. Gen. Budi Gunawan as a suspect was invalid, has opened a legal loophole for corruption suspects looking to have charges against them quashed before they are even brought to trial.
