The Grand Imam of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), Rizieq Shihab, submitted a pretrial application to challenge the determination of the suspect in a crowd case and a violation of the health protocol (prokes). The pretrial was submitted to the South Jakarta District Court.
Rizieq Shihab’s pretrial lawsuit has been registered with number 150 / Pid.Pra / 2020 / PN South Jakarta, dated December 15.
“Today the HRS advocacy team registered a pretrial request to the South Jakarta District Court,” FPI lawyer Aziz Yanuar told on Tuesday, December 15.
Aziz said the pretrial lawsuit was a legal challenge by Rizieq Shihab. This is because the process of determining the suspect against him is considered odd.
Rizieq Shihab was named a suspect in the case of alleged crowd and health protocol violations, on Thursday, December 10. Not only Rizieq, in that case, the police also named five other suspects.
In this case, Rizieq was charged with Article 160 KUHP and 216 KUHP. Meanwhile, the other suspect was charged with Article 93 of Law Number 6 of 2018 concerning Health Quarantine.
Rizieq has since been detained since 12 December. Rizieq is currently in a drug detention cell at Polda Metro Jaya.
