"The Police will prioritize restorative justice, open the widest possible mediation space," said Rusdi in a press conference at Police Headquarters, South Jakarta. Wednesday (3/3).
Furthermore, said Rusdi, if the mediation process is not achieved then law enforcement will still be carried out but the police will not arrest them. According to him, the National Police really puts law enforcement into the final process.
"So the mediation process that will be put forward in handling cases related to the ITE Law is especially personal," said Rusdi.
Rusdi emphasized that if there is a violation of the law that will have an impact on dividing the nation, it will lead to horizontal conflicts in the midst of society, the police will take firm action against all of them. This is different from interpersonal related cases.
"If the nation has divided, divided, disturbed public order, the police will act decisively," said Rusdi.
Restorative justice is an effort to restore the rights of victims while still holding the perpetrators accountable by means of reconciliation. The aim of a restorative justice is to create harmony for the victim so that the dispute resolution is restorative.
