"Considering where as based on the evidence obtained by the respondent (KPK) and the examination of a number of witnesses, after being examined, the evidence obtained by the requested party is not the result of Sprindik numbe r56/01/07/2017 before Setnov is determined as a suspect," said Judge Cepi whiler eading consideration of his decision in South Jakarta District Court, Friday (September 29). 

In addition, Judge Cepi said KPK used evidences of other cases investigations -- namely in the case that strangled Irman, Sugiharto, and Andi Narogong -- as evidence in naming Setnov as suspect.

Therefore, Judge Cepi said when Novanto as the applicant was designated as a suspect, KPK as the requested party had not conducted related investigation (a quo).
