Prashant, the son of Anand, said that KPAA submitted the voice recording of the trial which they had obtained from Anand Krishna’s Legal Counselors so that the Judicial Committee can get a whole picture in which the Team of Judges actually requested the Public Prosecutor to present the Expert Witnesses again in court but the Prosecutor had refused to do so.
“We submitted the recording of the trial on July 27th, 2011 when the Prosecutor refused to summon the Expert Witnesses again despite the suggestion of the Team of Judges. Therefore, the complaints of Agung Mattauch’s side are wrongfully addressed and very misleading because he should have actually reported the Prosecutor to the Deputy Attorney or to the Public Attorney Commission. Don’t blame the Team of Judges because they have worked well and delivered the correct verdict,“ he explained.
The recording also revealed Phung Soe Swe’s (alias Chandra) testimony which explained that the bathroom where he claimed to have found the tissue containing sperm was a public one. The staffs that work there, including himself, use it.
In the meanwhile, the sperm evidence never existed and was never listed in the list of seized evidence in the Police Report, neither was it listed in the Prosecutor’s indictment.
“In the trial on July 6th, 2011 witness Chandra himself stated that the bathroom in the third floor was not my father’s private bathroom. But the staffs who work there often use it. And the sperm evidence never existed. Consequently we also submitted the list of seized evidence included either in the case file or the Prosecutor’s indictment to prove this,” he said.
In the meanwhile, KPAA’s spokesperson dr. Sayoga deplored the accusation of Lawyer Agung Mattauch about the allegation that Anand Krishna once sat in the same car as the Team of Judges when they were going to the crime scene.
He explained Anand Krishna has never sat together with the Team of Judges in one car but they went in their own cars to the crime scene. And this fact was witnessed by many people, including parking attendants, security personnel in South Jakarta District Court, also the clerk at court and the drivers themselves.
“Ms. Albertina Ho is one of the honest and dedicated judges in this country, at this moment. Don’t let this (report) turn into a misleading slander, which leads to defamation and unpleasant acts when conveyed to the public or state institutions without evidence and solid foundation. Moreover, don’t ever let character assassination happen to that person. Don’t ever let Ms. Albertina Ho to be “anand-krishna-ed” as well. We ask the people who are only looking for sensations by spreading false news are warned and reported to the relevant agencies because it is related to public deception, “he said.
Since the beginning of this case in February 2010, the only prosecuting witness Tara Pradipta Laksmi always makes sensational statements without strong evidence, including the statement quoted by one online media which said this case was merely an entry-gate to a much more serious case, namely religious desecrations. And about the increasing number of the victims of sexual harassment who reported the case, but it turned out there was only one person who did it, and it has been decided to be untruthful by the Team of Judges.
KPAA is now collecting evidence in order to report Agung’s behavior to his professional agency for violations of professional ethical codes.
