The chairman of Islam Peace and Safe Party or known as Partai Idaman, Rhoma Irama have opined that he revocation of political right for corruptor is not the best solution for apply. This is due to the imprisonment and expropriation of assets by the state have become the tough sentence for the corruptor and he believe both of the sentence can give deterrent effects for corruptor.
“I think there is enough for current situation,” said Rhoma when attending the National Work Meeting from Partai Idaman in Soneta Record Indonesia Studio Complex at Depok, West Java.
According to Rhoma, political right is a part from human rights and due to that, the revocation of political rights will collide with human rights. In other side, human is a creature which can change. There are man who in first is good and change into bad. There is happen vice-versa, bad man can also change into good man.
Due to that, there are not rights for other man to revoke other man rights including political rights for corruptor. “We should put respect to human rights. I think there is not because they are thieves, so they so put away from public, must revoke their politics rights and constitutionals. I am disagree with that,” said Rhoma.
Rhoma have presume that living inside prison is the worst conditions. Imprisonment have become very effective these days. “Even it can become good lesson for them. People who are corrupt and have imprisonment can become good shock therapy for themselves or other person to be became better man. Imprisonment can become the great experience for the corruptor,” said Rhoma Irama.
