Friday (19/10), students who are a member of the Airlangga Criminal Law Research and Monitoring Justice (ACLJ) visited the Indonesian Judicial Commission Office Liaison of East Java Region, Jl. Ngagel Jaya Tengah III No. 8 Pucang Sewu, Surabaya.
This visit was held in order to hold discussions with the Judicial Commission of the Republic of Indonesia, with the theme “The Active Role of Students as Social Control in the Implementation of Courts in Indonesia”.
The student visit was welcomed by the Coordinator of Judicial Commission East Java Regional Office, Dizar Alfarizi, who also acted as the panelist. He argues that students can have a vital role in judicial supervision in general and the supervision of the judge’s behavior in particular.
“It is expected that students can make a positive contribution through trial monitoring, judicial decisions analysis and making an amicus curiae. Once again the role of students is very large here, we as students can exercise control over court decisions by testing the decision whether the decision issued is appropriate or not, “said Dizar.
The enthusiasm of the participants can be seen from the various questions raised. One of the students who attended the discussion, Faisal Ridwan (FH15), asked whether there is an overlap between the supervision carried out by the Supreme Court and Supervision by the Judicial Commission.
Responding to this question, Dizar explained that the Supervisory Board which is within the Supreme Court is more concentrated on internal supervision while the Judicial Commission is concentrated on external supervision. In addition, the supervision carried out by the Judicial Commission is limited to the behavior of judges, while oversight by the Supreme Court covers all aspects of the judiciary, including supervision of the Court’s environmental staff.
At the end of the discussion, Dizar thanked the students who attended. ACLJ and the East Java Regional Judicial Commission also reached an agreement that after this hearing, that it is expected to establish an ongoing communication between ACLJ and the Judicial Commission, in the form of an apprenticeship program and trial monitoring training. The discussion ended with a group photo session.
