A team monitoring the trials of an attack against religious minority group Ahmadiyah said Monday the prosecutor performed below standard.
It said many witnesses’ statements were not well-explored during the trials.
Wahyu Wagiman, a team member from the Institute for Policy Research and Advocacy (Elsam), told reporters the prosecutor ignored statements from key witnesses such as Muh. Kamil Safei over the 13 trials.
“Kamil said in a trial that he received a text message from Ujang Muh. Arif, a case defendant, saying that Habib Rizieq, the Islamic Defenders Front [FPI] leader, would be held responsible for the riot,” Wahyu said.
