The Constitutional Court (MK) conducted the second trial for the Dispute over State Bodies Authorities (SKLN) between the Bank of Indonesia (BI) against the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), Thursday (6/3), at the Plenary Court Room 2nd Floor of the Constitutional Court Building.
The filing of the case by the BI was based on the calling from the KPK to the Governor of BI, Dr. Ir. Burhanudin Abdullah,M.A. on November 22nd, 2007 and January 3rd, 2008 was without any approval from the President. In fact, according to the Article 49 of Act No. 3 Year 2004 on Bank of Indonesia, calling, asking for information, and investigation on the Governor of Bank of Indonesia suspected for a crime needed to obtain written approval from the President in advance.
In the second trial the Panel Board of Constitution Justices chaired by Justice Maruarar Siahaan made a confirmation on the withdrawal letter made by the Governor of BI. Regarding that matter, the Legal Counsel of BI, Aa Dani Saliswijaya,S.H.,M.H said that what was written in the letter was exactly true. "About the legal standing, we feel the information we gave was correct. However we consider this case does not fit to be registered as a Dispute over State Bodies Authorities case,Ã¢â¬Â explained Aa Dani regarding the reason for the case withdrawal.
At the end of the trial, Aa Dani also said that to settle the dispute between the BI and the KPK, the BI had also found a more appropriate solution channel by filing a case of Trial of Act. (Kencana Suluh Hikmah / Yogi Djatnika)
