Sukawi Pre-Trial Hearing

DetikNews.com reported on the pre-trial hearing in the Sukawi Sutarip case  held on 2 May 2012 — see here and here for background on this case.  The article is not very clear about the arguments put forward.  The provincial High Prosecutor seems to be arguing that they found no evidence that funds were diverted (penyimpangan) whereas Slamet, of LBH Semarang, is quoted arguing that the law only requires that state losses could (dapat) have resulted from legal violations that enriched the perpetrator.  If the investigators found no evidence of corruption it seems unusual that the investigation went as far as naming the former Mayor as a suspect. 

“Di situ tercantum ‘setiap orang yang secara melawan hukum melakukan perbuatan memperkaya diri atau orang lain atau suatu korporasi yang dapat merugikan keuangan negara atau perekonomian negara’. Kata ‘dapat’ dilihat dari delik formil bukan materil jadi tidak harus ada kerugian,” papar Slamet.

Mantan Walikota Semarang, Sukawi Sutarip, terjerat kasus dugaan korupsi dana komunikasi APBD Kota Semarang tahun 2004 sebesar Rp 2,4 miliar dan dana tak terduga sebesar Rp 2,7 miliar. Lalu pada 28 Oktober 2010 Kejati Jateng menerbitkan SP3 terhadap Sukawi yang sudah ditetapkan sebagai tersangka.
