A joint Judicial Commission and Supreme Court ethics panel dismissed ad hoc judge Ramlan Comel of the Bandung Corruption Court on Wednesday for breaching the ethics code by meddling in a major corruption case implicating a former Bandung mayor.

The panel found that Ramlan communicated with former mayor Dada Rosada'€™s confidant, Toto Hutalagung, a community leader in Bandung, concerning a Rp 40 billion social aid embezzlement case being tried at the Bandung District Court.

'€œDuring the communication, it was agreed that the panel would not implicate Dada Rosada in the case,'€ said panel member Jaja Ahmad Jayus of the Judicial Commission while reading out the decision.

Dada has been charged, while Toto is serving a seven-year prison sentence.

The ethics panel also found '€œan indication that Ramlan knew and accepted money in connection with the Bandung social aid graft case'€ as the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators allege that Toto paid bribes to one of Ramlan'€™s colleagues, then Bandung District Court deputy head Setyabudi Tejocahyono.
