MUHAMMADIYAH.ID, JAKARTA – The government should uphold laws without neglecting humanitarian principles and public rights such as legal transparency.
Chair of the Muhammadiyah Council for Laws and Human Rights Trisno Raharjo supported the government to enforce more humane and transparent law. He also encouraged the National Commission on Human Rights to engaged in countermeasures against terrorisms.
“131 suspected terrorists dead excluding one in the Indonesian National Police headquarters. They’re supposed to be brought to justice, not directly killed,” asserted Trisno in an online forum on “Problems of the Enforcement of the Criminal Act of Terrorism on Sunday (5/4).
Data of he National Commission on Human Rights revealed that 120 suspected terrorists dead, and the justice wasn’t done yet.
Trisno’s aware that the police have huge risks to confront the terrorists, but the idea of warfare to take down the terrorists should be shifted.
“We have to apply a criminal law system. If the police consider the attack a war, it seems that we implement an old subversive law which tends to killing instead of paralyzing,”
