I am commencing a project with Dr Fritz Siregar of the University of Indonesia on ‘Administrative Justice in Indonesia’. In 2015, one of the last efforts of Chan and Sukumaran prior to their death sentence was an attempt to challenge the presidents’ decision not to issue a pardon in the State Administrative Courts (PTUN). While this case failed, it highlighted the little that is known about the role of the PTUN in such highly political and important cases. This project is therefore of importance to Australia and will inform academics, students, public policy makers and a wider audience on the functioning of the PTUN. In addition, this project will be of direct relevance to Indonesia because it will offer the first major evaluation of the PTUN in the post-1998 era and demonstrate how the PTUN have been a central component of the democratization process.
