Beritadewata.com reports that Indonesian campaigner for a pluralistic society Anand Krishna has vowed to mortally resist efforts to execute an Indonesian court order for him to begin serving a 2.5-year prison sentence.

Dr. Sayoga, a spokesman for the Community of Supporters of Anand Krishna (KPAA), confirmed that am arrest letter sent from the South Jakarta District Court to Krishna’s Jakarta address was refused and remained unread.

Krishna has confirmed that he will resist all official efforts to bring him to prison, condemning the Supreme Court decision that overturned his earlier absolute acquittal as legally defective, injurious to the principle of justice before the law, an attempt to deny him his constitutional rights and a basic violation of his human rights.

Sayoga told the press: “The highest expression of respect and esteem for law is when a person stands up to oppose an unjust law and is prepared to suffer the consequences in order that the public can be made aware of a continuing injustice.”

Kirshna’s spokesman confirmed that the champion of Indonesian pluralism will remain in isolation in Bali, continuing to resist what he and his followers see as a fundamental injustice. Separately, Krishna, in September, confirmed that he will not attempt to flee the law, challenging police authorities to come fetch his body if they insist on punishing him for a crime he never committed.

The High Court for the South Jakarta Court led by respected jurist Albertina Ho had earlier unconditionally freed Anand Krishna on all charges and restored his civil rights, ruling he was “not guilty” of the criminal charges made against him.

The KPAA have made available a public examination of the Anand Krishna case carried out in Yogyakarta and Denpasar in October by a group of high-reanking legal authorities. The panel reviewing the case included professor emeritus of criminal law from Diponegoro University Professor Dr. Nyoman Serikat Putrajaya SH MH; professor emeritus of criminal law from Gajah Mada University Professor Doctor Edward Omar Sharif Hiarej SH Mhum; the Yogyakarta chairman of the Indonesian Advocate Association (PERADI) Nur Ismanto SH MH; a retired judge from the Indonesian Constitutional Court (2003-2008) Dr. I Dewa Gede Palgun SH MH; an expert on criminal law from Bali’s Udayana University; Dr. IB Surya Jaya SH MH; and Human right experts and investigator Johny N. Simandjuntak.

The experts universally concluded that the judicial review and reversal of Anand Krishna’s innocent verdict by the Supreme Court was in violation of the Indonesian Constitution and offended Krishna's human rights.

The review committee determined that Krishna had been denied a certainty of law, equal treatment before the law and had fallen victim to an unprofessional miscarriage of justice by Supreme Court justices Zaharuddin Utama, Achmad Yamanie and Sofyan Sitompul.
