By N. Mark Castro
In the continuing saga that’s proving to be better than the local sinetron, other legal and academic luminaries weigh in their opinion on Denny Indrayana’s controversial remark.
According to the Jakarta Globe, quoting Andi Syafrani, a law lecturer at Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University:

And Yusril Ihza Mahendra, a former justice and human rights minister, said the Twitter post was “enough for Kaligis to have reported Denny to police.” Yusril is a highly reputed lawyer and an expert in state administration law who last year won a legal battle against the Attorney General’s Office that led to the attorney general’s dismissal.
