REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) made a promise here 
on Thursday he would settle all unsettled cases of the past including the death 
case of human rights activist Munir Said Thalib.

The president made the statement during a meeting with a number of law experts 
and practitioners at Merdeka Palace.

He had gathered the law experts and practitioners to collect inputs to improve 
law enforcement in the country.

"They need a firm law enforcement action," the president said.

President Jokowi asked the law experts and practitioners to give inputs 
regarding the settlement of the cases and also on how to put overlapping laws 
in order. He also asked for inputs on how to put law enforcement agencies in 
the country in order.

"We ask for recommendations for putting our law enforcement institutions, such 
as for example the police, the ministry of justice and human rights or perhaps 
the prosecutor's office and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) so that 
settlement of cases could be done thoroughly, comprehensively and really 
settling problems in our country," he said.

President Jokowi said he was aware that law enforcement in Indonesia has not 
yet been able to give a deterrent effect to the violators. He said he had been 
resolved to settle the cases and reform law enforcement agencies in Indonesia.

"I think we all know there have been a lot of corruption cases unveiled 
recently relating to elite members of state institutions and influence dealing. 
Law enforcement on the other hand has not yet been able to give a deterrent 
effect in terms of sentences or sentence demand," he said.
