NGOs Request Review of Sukawi Corruption Case

On 26 April 2012 five NGOs — LBH Semarang, YAPPHI Solo, KP2KKN, PATTIRO Semarang, and AMPUH  — submitted a request to the Semarang District Court for a pre-trial hearing (praperadilan) in relation to the provincial High Prosecutor’s decision to halt (SP3) the corruption investigation of Sukawi Sutarip, the former Mayor of Semarang who switched to the Democrat Party during the investigation.  I’ve noted this case here.  The following national and regional news outlets reported on this development:
