SAVE BUNI YANI: STOP LEGAL CHARGES AND CRIMINALIZATION

Buni Yani is a university professor in Jakarta, Indonesia who tried to uncover the enethical behavior of the Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahja Purnama (Ahok). In a speech during his work visit the governor said bad things about Muslim's holy Book, the Qur'an, and the Muslims. He said that the Qur'an's verse Al-Maidah 51 that forbids Muslims to choose Christians and Jews as their leaders can be used by ulama/Muslim sholars as well as people at large to eliminate him from the Jakarta gubernatorial election. For many Muslims in Jakarta, this is a blasphemy against the Qur'an for the governor alleged that the holy scripture can be used "to dupe" people so that he (a Christian) won't win the election. 

Buni Yani had been named a suspect, his dossier was sent to the court by the prosecutors, and is now tried at the court. The police charged him with the Indonesian information and electronic transaction law with the alleged intention to spread sectarian hatreds. The charge was baseless. Buni reuploaded the video of the governor (from a second source) on Facebook with a three-sentence caption just to invite Facebookers to discuss the matter but the police was criminalizing him. The Indonesian police had been allegedly used by undemocratic President Jokowi (who openly supports the governor)  to crush the opposition and critical voices.

The prosecutors charged Buni Yani with baseless charges for they had no adequate evidences. The prosecutors said Buni Yani had spread sectarian hatred (Article 28 point 2) and had cut the video (Article 32 point 1), and demanded that Buni Yani be sentenced for 2 years and 100 million rupiah fine. These charges were nonsense for during the trial the prosecutors could not prove any single evidence. 

We urge the Bandung State Court to release Buni Yani from any charges. We urge the Indonesian president to protect citizens, stop criminalization, and not intervene the trial.

Muslim brothers and sisters around the world, please sign the petition to release Buni Yani from legal charges and criminalization. Your one-minute click will save his life. Thank you.

========================

Buni Yani tidak bersalah dalam mengunggah video Bapak Gubernur Basuki Tjahja Purnama alias Ahok. Buni Yani hanya menjalankan tugasnya sebagai warga negara, akademisi dan peneliti media yang dijamin oleh kebebasan berpendapat sesuai Pasal 28 UUD 1945.

Segala tuntutan kepadanya akan merupakan preseden yang buruk bagi penegakan hukum, kebenaran dan keadilan di Tanah Air.

Polisi seharusnya segera menerbitkan SP3, seharusnya kejaksaan menerbitkan SKP2, dan menggugurkan kasus ini karena tidak memiliki unsur pidana. Namun kekuasaan biadab, otoriter dan diktatorial di bawah Jokowi sangat kuat kelihatan mengintervensi proses hukum sehingga kasus ini disidangkan di Pengadilan Negeri Bandung.

Kepada majelis hakim, kami mendesak untuk membebaskan Buni Yani dari semua tuntutan dan kriminalisasi. Tuntutan jaksa agar Buni Yani dipenjara 2 tahun dan denda 100 juta rupiah sangat berlebihan dan zalim.

Kepada rakyat Indonesia pecinta keadilan, ayo bebaskan Buni Yani. Umat Islam, khususnya, harus membantu saudara kita ini. Ayo segera isi petisi dan viralkan.
