Law and Human Rights deputy minister Denny Indrayana said on Saturday that the government was revising the Government Regulation No.28/2006 on inmates’ rights, aiming at tightening the remissions policy.
In the revision, only justice collaborators and whistle blowers will be eligible for sentence remission.
“Remissions will be granted only to justice collaborators,” Denny said on his Twitter account.
Justice collaborators will also be eligible for several other advantages, including commutation.
The revision is currently being discussed in the Law and Human Rights Ministry, according to Denny, with advice from the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the National Narcotics Agency (BNN), the National Police and Indonesia Corruption Watch.
The revision will regulate terms and conditions that have to be met before an inmate can get a sentence reduction.
“The requirements should be measurable and accountable,” he said, adding that the revision would take a few months. (swd)
