REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Setya Novanto's lawyer Nana Suryana denied his client was pretending to be sick during inaugural session of e-ID card procurement corruption case in Corruption Court.

Nevertheless, team of doctors have examined the defendant and stated that he was fit to stand trial.

"When we sick, we're the one who knows how it feel. The doctors would not know if we're depressed as they are internist, not psychologists. It could affect," Nana said on Thursday (December 14).

Nana assessed, Novanto was not in a good shape. Therefore, he could not hear clearly when the indictment was read.

On the other hand, he saw the inaugural session seemed to be run by force.

"It was related to the pretrial motion. If the inaugural session in the Corruption Court was not held on Wednesday then the judge still has options whether to drop or accept the suit. But, because the inaugural session was already held then the motion otomatically failed," he said.

Nana said, he appreciated and respected the decision from sole Judge Kusno against pretrial motion filed by his client. He assessed that the verdict is in accordance with the law.

"So, the decision from sole judge Kusno, just like what he said, it refers to Article 82 paragraph 1 letter d is related to the decision of the Constitutional Court Number 102 / PUU-XIII / 2015. The pretrial motion must be dropped because the principal case has been examined by Corruption Court," Nana said.
