    Ex Constitutional Court Chairman Apologizes to Indonesian Nation

    Tobapos -- Former constitutional court chairman Akil Mochtar who currently stands trial for allegedly receiving bribes has apologized to the Indonesian nation for his wrongdoings.

    "Allow me to apologize to the constitutional court, all judges, the people, and the country," Akil stated in his note of defense at the anticorruption court here on Monday.

    Akil has been accused of taking bribes in handling 10 cases of regional election disputes referred to the constitutional court and being involved in money laundering. He is facing a maximum of life sentence and a fine of Rp10 billion.

    "As human beings we tend to commit mistakes. I have committed many mistakes. After the KPK (Corruption Eradication Commission) arrested me on October 3, 2013, as a manifestation of my responsibility as the chief of the constitutional court, I resigned. However, I was dishonorably dismissed, although I was not given a chance to defend myself," he said.

    He felt his misfortune followed him for the remainder of his life.

    "But I had no intention of destroying the constitutional court. Neither did I have pretension to destroy democracy and the constitutional court. I make a heartfelt apology if I am considered to have committed the charges leveled on me by the KPK. The problem is really far from what I am facing," he said. (ant/adm)
