TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – President Joko Widodo or Jokowi has firmly stated that the government does not intend to grant discounts to those convicted of corruption in order to minimize the spread of coronavirus in prisons.

“We never included corrupt detainees in our discussions during the meetings. There is no review of PP 99 on this subject. Parole is only for the general [crimes] prisoners, “said Jokowi during a teleconference from Bogor’s presidential palace on Monday April 6.

The Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly, said that his department was preparing a revision of government regulation No. 99/2012 in order to minimize the spread of the coronavirus in prisons. He said that corrupt detainees could be released provided they are 60 years of age or older and have served two-thirds of their prison sentence. “There are 300 people,” said Laoly.

Later, Minister for the Coordination of Political, Legal and Security Affairs Mahfud MD clarified Laoly’s statement. Mahfud said the government has no plans to revise PP No. 99/2012, which governs the modalities and procedures for implementing the rights of detainees, especially prisoners of corruption.

“Just to be clear, until today the government has no plans to change or revise PP 99/2012. We do not intend to provide prisoners with parole or parole “Mahfud said in a statement on Saturday April 4.
