JAKARTADAILY.ID – The abuse committed by Mario Dandy Satrio (20) to David Ozora (17) was deemed malicious by the Attorney General's Office (Kejagung), therefore the AGO will not offer the possibility of restorative justice to the son of the former Director General of Taxes.
The head of the legal information center (Kapuspenkum) of the Attorney General's Office, Ketut Sumedana, said that his party would not offer this option to victims or perpetrators.
"I emphasize that the case of the persecution of David Ozora does not deserve RJ, so we will not offer anything to either the victim/family or the perpetrator," said Ketut Sumedana to reporters, as quoted by Pikiran Rakyat on Sunday, March 19, 2023.
According to Ketut, Mario Dandy Satriyo and Shane Lukas (19) had carried out a very heinous and widespread persecution, so strict legal action was needed for the perpetrators.

"Besides the threat of punishment exceeding the limit stipulated in Perja No 15/2020, this act was very heinous and had a wide impact on both the media and society, so strict action and punishment are needed," said Ketut.
Not only that, but Ketut also emphasized that the perpetrators would not be offered restorative justice even though they were underage.
However, if you look at the law (UU) on the Juvenile Criminal Justice System, law enforcers must make peaceful efforts. This is done to safeguard children's future in conflict with the law, namely in the form of diversion, not restorative justice.
"However, diversion can only be carried out if there is peace and forgiveness from the victim and the victim's family. If there is no word of apology, then the case against the perpetrator of the child must be continued until court," said Ketut.
