Oecusse District Court - Incest Against Minors Hearing

Defendant Is The Father Of The Victims
JSMP PRESS RELEASE

Period: November 2008

Edition: November 2008

DEFENDANT IS THE FATHER OF THE VICTIMS

On 19 November the Oe-Cusse District Court conducted a hearing into a case of sexual assault involving the defendant HN. This immoral incident occurred in December 2006 in Taiboko village, Oe-Cusse. Based on monitoring conducted by JSMP at the aforementioned court, the trial was closed to the public because the case related to the chastity of minors (13 and 11 years old).

JSMP was informed by the lawyer for HN after the conclusion of the trial that the defendant did not provide consistent testimony throughout the course of the trial in regards to what he had previously told police during their investigations. This was also the case with testimony provided by the witness (mother of the victims).

The two victims decided to say nothing when invited to make a statement. As the testimony of the defendant kept changing the prosecution was not able to establish the elements of the charge (Article 285 of the Indonesian Penal Code).

In his final statement the lawyer for the defendant asked the court to acquit the defendant from all charges because his guilt had not been established.

Finally, the defendant informed the court that he and the victims had agreed to an amicable settlement (forgiveness). However, it appears that the court did not recognize this agreement because it was unclear.

PRESS RELEASE

Edisi : Novembro 2008

TERDAKWA MERUPAKAN ORANG TUA PARA KORBAN SENDIRI

Pengadilan Oe-cusse pada 19 November mengadakan sidang kasus penyerangan seksual yang melibatkan terdakwa berinisial HN. Peristiwa asusila ini terjadi pada Desember 2006 di Desa (Taiboko, Oe-Cusse).

Menurut pemantauan JSMP di pengadilan tersebut bahwa, persidangan itu tertutup untuk umum karena kasus tersebut berhubungan kesusilaan dengan korban anak dibawah umur (13 dan 11 tahun). Informasi persidangan yang sempat JSMP peroleh dari pengacara terdakwa HN di akhir persidangan bahwa, selama persidangan berlangsung, terdakwa tidak memberikan keterangan yang konsisten berdasarkan apa yang pernah disampaikan pada saat investigasi awal di kepolisian.

Demikian pula keterangan dari saksi (ibu para korban). Sedangkan kedua korban hanya memilih diam pada saat dipersilahkan untuk memberikan keterangannya. karena keterangan terdakwa yang berubah-ubah, pihak kejaksaan juga tidak mempertahankan dasar hukum dalam dakwaannya ( Psl. 285 KUHP).

Sedangkan dalam pembelaan terakhir, pihak pembela memohon kepada pengadilan untuk membebaskan terdakwa dari segala tuntutan hukum karena terbukti tidak bersalah.

Sebagai kata-kata terakhir yang perlu disampaikan kepada pengadilan, terdakwa mengatakan dirinya dan para korban sudah melakukan akta damai (pemaafan) sebelumnya. Namun nampaknya pengadilan tetap tidak mengakui kesepakatan tersebut karena dianggap akta perdamaian itu tidak jelas.
