Underage Marriage 2

October 13, 2009, in Pengadilan Negeri (District Court) Syech Puji has freed. Syech Puji is accused in enderage case. He accused of breaking Children Protection Law because has married Ulfa. (Read Underage Marriage)

He has freed because Judge agreed his exeptio. Exeptio is defence not including the main case.
In Putusan Sela (chink decision), Judge of District Court valued accusation is not accurate, not clear, and indistinct (obscure libel), so that null and void.
Of course freedom of accused resulted in many protests. Some people worry about appearing the same case with the other young girl in the future. It is not about marriage law anymore, but also about protection of children. Yes, Ulfa is still a child. Still 13 years old.

This case is still processed. Public Prosecutor will appeal to Pengadilan Tinggi (Appellate Court).
