PREMIUM The Constitutional Court ruled in favor of a death-row inmate on Wednesday by deciding that a law that limits clemency appeals to within a year after a verdict is invalid.

“Article 7, paragraph 2 of the 2010 Clemency Law is not legally binding because it conflicts with the Constitution,” Constitutional Court chief justice, Arief Hidayat, said while reading the ruling on Wednesday.
