Anyone involved in a legal case must be brought to justice because all citizens are equal before the law, according to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.

“Everyone is equal before the law,” the President said after distributing land certificates to residents in Bangkalan Regency at the Pendopo 2 of the Office of Bangkalan Regent, on Wednesday (19/12).

“If there is a legal case, do not define it as criminalization. You should not think that way because every legal case must be settled at the court,” the President firmly said.

Also accompanying President Jokowi in the event were Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/ Head of the National Land Agency (BPN) Sofyan Djalil, Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung, Governor of East Java Soekarwo, and Deputy Regent of Bangkalan Mohni. (BPMI/EN)
