TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - LIKE chasing a target of to give gifts to whoever it is, the House of Representatives and the government are rushing to pass the Criminal Code (KUHP). They ignore public’s rejection on crucial issues that curb democracy, restrict the privacy of citizens, and reduce the punishment of corruptors. The KUHP, which has been deliberated since 1963, is finally ratified in the era of President Joko Widodo. But the content is worse than the one inherited from the Dutch colonial government. Who designed Jokowi’s KUHP? Who supports it?

Amidst the disarray, companies whose competence is questionable are interested in continuing the project. Is the project, worth hundreds of millions of US dollars, still relevant?
