South Jakarta district court extends Ferdy Sambo’s detention


Jakarta, IO – South Jakarta district court confirms that Ferdy Sambo, the defendant in the murder of Police Brigadier Norfriansyah Yosua Hutabarat (Brigadier J) will not be released even though his detention period ends on January 9.

“After the end of the detention period, the panel of judges will request an extension of detention to the high court on the basis of Article 29 paragraph 1, 2 and 6. Of course, this has been anticipated by the assembly that handles the case of Ferdy Sambo and other defendants,” said the court’s spokesperson Djuyamto, reported Kompas, Tuesday (3/1).

Djuyamto emphasized that the extension of the detention period had been included in the drafting of the detention calendar by the panel of judges and the court could indeed apply for an extension of the detention period if Sambo’s trial has not been concluded. According to him, there are articles in the Criminal Law Procedures Code (KUHAP) that allow this.

“If it turns out that the trial has not been completed at the district court level within the 90-day detention period, an extension can be requested from the high court. Based on Article 29, the maximum extension is 60 days,” said Djuyamto.
