Rizieq Shihab -- FPI

Rizieq Shihab, the head of the FPI (Front Pembela Islam / Islam Defenders Front), gets 18 months jail for his role in the violence that took place at Monas this past June.

There is likely to be an appeal as Rizieq's legal team will have issues with whether the procedural law was followed as it must be and that some of those that were interviewed and provided testimony have since withdrawn their testimony.

but I read they appealed this decision.

Elyani...

I said that they probably would based on claims of procedural errors and questions about the validity of evidence.

Not surprised. If I was his lawyer I would be appealing too.

Wish that the appealed will be rejected.

Hipocricy ? Yes, I'm, getting sick and tired with their act.
