Jakarta Legal Aid Institute (LBH) that accompanied the victims of the eviction in Papanggo, North Jakarta and Duri Kepa, West Jakarta has submitted a judicial review on the Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) No 51/1960 concerning the use of land without consent from the owner.

Lawyer for the LBH Jakarta, Alldo Fellix Januardy said that the Judicial Review asks the Constitutional Court (MK) to reconsider Article 2, Article 3, Article 4, and Article 6.

“The four articles violate the constitutional right of eviction victims,” he said at the Constitutional Court, Jakarta, Tuesday, September 27, 2016. According to him, the government often use the four articles to carry out evictions and consider it as a legal act. However, Aldo said the legality of the act must be first proven in a court.

In an eviction, Aldo says, a one-sided claim often happens and the executor would not necessarily show a certificate and or conduct a discussion first. “Force and unofficial authorities are often be done.”

On the other hand, that law is considered irrelevant at present day since the Perppu was born under the pretense of defense from the many rebellions at that time. Therefore, Alldo hopes the Constitutional Court would be sensible and would listen to the aspirations of the eviction victims.

Rojiyanto, resident at Papanggo, North Jakarta, said that the victims hope for justice from the government. He hopes by doing this judicial review to the MK, the victim’s rights – for example, the compensation, can be fulfilled.
