Corruption courts

Gavel reads: Justice, Corruption Courts

The integrity of regional anti-corruption court judges has come into question after a rising number of defendants have been allowed to walk free. According to Indonesian Corruption Watch there have been 40 acquittals since the courts were established leading defense lawyers to adopt a new legal strategy of ensuring their clients are tried in regional courts rather than the anti-corruption court in Jakarta that has a nearly 100% record of successful prosecutions.
