Justice Patrialis Akbar of Indonesia; accepting bribes


The Supreme Court of Indonesia presented Patrialis Akbar with a law license in 1985 after he graduated from Muhammadiyah University of Jakarta.


In one matter, Akbar was recently (January 2017) arrested on bribery charges. The bribery case was discovered after Akbar’s arrest. It is alleged that Akbar received Rp2 billion ($150,000 U.S.) in bribes from meat Basuki Hariman in a judicial review of Law No. 41/2014 on Animal Husbandry and Animal Health.


Shortly after his arrest, the Constitutional Court’s Ethics Council declared that Patrialis had committed a gross breach of ethics. The Ethics Council had also asked the Constitutional Court to establish an Honor Council.


All that remains now is to see how long it takes for Akbar to cop a plea to accepting a bribe.
