Depok.suara.com – Regarding the violation of the code of ethics at the crime scene, the police have brought Inspector General Pol Ferdy Sambo to the Brimob headquarters for examination.
The Head of the National Police Public Relations Division, Inspector General Pol. Dedi Prasetyo said Ferdy was placed in a special place within the Mobile Brigade Corps. This examination questioned ethical violations in handling the crime scene examination of the death of Brigadier J.
However, Ferdy was not detained, he was only going to undergo an examination so he needed a special placement.
“(Special placement) is in the context of the investigation. So, it is not true that there is (arrest and detention),” said Dedi to reporters at the National Police Headquarters, Jakarta, Saturday (07/08/2022).
Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menkopolhukam) Mahfud MD confirmed the news.
Yes, I have received information that Ferdy Sambo was taken to the Mobile Brigade Headquarters and the Provost,” said Mahfud MD.
The question now, according to Mahfud, is why Ferdy Sambo was detained at the Provost, as if it indicated that Ferdy was being investigated for an ethical violation.
So from Mahfud straightening out that according to law, ethical violations and criminal offenses can work together and do not have to wait for each other.
“And they cannot cancel each other out,” said Mahfud as quoted from Antara, Sunday (07/08/2022).
Thus, when someone is sentenced to ethical sanctions, it does not mean that his criminal allegations are ruled out. Ethical violations will continue to be processed, as well as criminal violations which will also be processed on an equal footing.
“For example, in the past the case of Mr. Akil Mochtar (former Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court) at the Constitutional Court. When the person concerned was arrested on suspicion of corruption after being OTT (arrest operation), then without waiting for the completion of the criminal process his ethical violation was processed and he was dismissed from his position as MK judges through ethical sanctions,” said Mahfud.
Mahfud said that this would make it easier for criminal investigations to occur, because the person concerned could not be involved in completing the case at the Constitutional Court.
“He can’t be flirty in the Constitutional Court,” said Mahfud.
Some time after the ethical sanction is imposed, then a criminal sentence is imposed. The Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs explained that criminal investigations are more complicated. So it takes longer than an ethical violation examination.
“The public doesn’t need to worry, solving this ethical problem will actually make it easier to speed up criminal investigations,” said Mahfud.
