Islamic scholars, criminal law experts to testify at Ahok hearing … – Jakarta Post

Two Islamic scholars and two criminal law experts are scheduled to testify on Tuesday as witnesses in a follow-up hearing in the trial of Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama.

The eleventh hearing will be held by the North Jakarta District Court in the auditorium of the Agriculture Ministry in Ragunan, South Jakarta, at 9 a.m.

“The Islamic scholars are Yunahar Ilyas from the Indonesian Ulema Council [MUI] and KH Miftachul Akhyar from the Nahdlatul Ulama central executive board [PBNU],” Ahok’s lawyer, Edi Danggur, said as quoted by kompas.com in Jakarta on Monday.

Meanwhile, the two criminal law experts scheduled to appear are Abdul Chair Ramadhan and Mudzakkir, he went on to say.

Abdul is a criminal law expert from the MUI while Mudzakkir is from the Indonesia Islamic University (UII) Yogyakarta. They were scheduled to testify in a previous hearing last week but because they were on duty, their testimonies were delayed to Tuesday. (ebf)
