… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

For Constitutional Court Chief Hamdan, Justice Will Prevail

Jakarta. Hamdan Zoelva was dressed in his gray suit and white shirt — not the black judicial robe he commonly dons while presiding over hearings at the Constitutional Court occasionally broadcast on television.

The chief justice of the Court (MK) has become one of the most talked-about figures in Indonesian politics after he led the court hearing last week upholding outgoing Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo’s win in the presidential election.

Hamdan’s leading role in presiding over an impactful trial that ultimately delivered a unanimous vote in favor of Joko, has won not only praise by political observers, who called him “the man of the hour” as the court handed down its verdict that day, it has also transformed him into a social media darling. The chief justice especially been a big hit with the nation’s female population, with its social media users taking to Twitter and Facebook to gush about his “handsome” looks.

Hamdan said he was aware of his sudden popularity — there have been many mentions of his account on Twitter, @hamdanzoelva, and hordes of fans have been commenting on his Facebook pages since that day of the court ruling.

“Their reactions actually surprised me. But I thank the [social media] commenters for that. I consider that an appreciation,” Hamdan told the Jakarta Globe during an interview in his office on Tuesday.

“But most importantly, to me it means that the court has had a great effect on people. They probably took notice because they watched the judicial process [on television], and that counted as people’s participation in our democracy.”

Born in Bima, West Nusa Tenggara, 52 years ago, Hamdan began his professional career as a lawyer in a Jakarta-based firm. In 1999, he was elected to represent his home province in parliament (DPR), under the banner of the Islamic Crescent Star Party (PBB). Between 1999 and 2002, he was the only representative of the party in the ad hoc committee for the 1945 Constitution amendments.

In early 2010, Hamdan left his political career behind after he was appointed as one of the Constitutional Court justices. Joining the court at the age of 47, Hamdan was the youngest constitutional judge at that time.

Being a chief of the nation’s highest judiciary institution, though, had never been Hamdan’s plan.

“It’s a destined path,” he said, adding that he also had never expected to take on the responsibilities of a job he used to avoid: a judge.

“When I was little, I was told that most judges would go to hell — two out of three of them,” Hamdan said.

“It’s hard to be a fair and good judge, it needs both competency and high integrity. A judge without integrity will bring [disaster] to justice.”

Presidential dispute

Within the comforts of his spacious office, Hamdan, who earned his master and doctorate degrees in law from Bandung’s Padjadjaran University (Unpad), gave the Globe a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the election dispute, as seen through his eyes.

The appeal that kick-started the process had been filed by losing presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto shortly after the announcement by the General Elections Commission (KPU) of its official tally on July 22, naming Joko as victor of what had been an emotionally charged race.

Hamdan called the trial — and the troubles stemming from it — occupational risks. Not only did the monumental proceedings attract pressures from both social and political parties, Hamdan and his family also received threats, according to media reports.

“Well, they weren’t exactly [terrorist acts],” Hamdan said of the reported threats. “My wife and I did receive [threatening] text messages, but those were all just empty words, nothing serious.”

He responded with a simple act — he turned off his phone.

“I said, if we receive numerous phone calls and messages, just turn it off, it wouldn’t kill us, right? So I turned off my public cellphone for one, maybe two days, and voila . I think of those messages as non existent,” he said.

Police also took precautionary steps by providing special security for the court’s nine justices, including Hamdan.

“There was extra security during the elections, since the legislative ones, but it was tighter during the presidential election. They guarded me, my family, my house, my official residence and even my house back in the village,” he said.

In the court’s headquarters in Central Jakarta, security was also beefed up as Prabowo’s supporters staged rallies in front of the court nearly every day of the proceedings. The crowd, said Hamdan, had no success in affecting the result of the trial.

“We saw them only on TV. We rarely looked at them. We were busy working — meetings, hearings, document checks and filling, and other [duties]. In any case, we cannot be pressured by anything.”

The chief justice was also a subject of a number accusations that surfaced during the trial, including the allegation that he was siding with one party or another. What made these claims particularly interesting — or especially ridiculous — was that they were made by both sides involved in the trial. Joko’s supporters cast doubt on Hamdan because of his past affiliation with the PBB, a party in Prabowo’s coalition, while Prabowo supporters accused him of having familial relation with a member of Joko’s campaign team.

“I’ve kept my neutrality,” Hamdan said on this. “I knew both camps — the candidates, the campaign teams, they are mostly my friends. I used to be in politics, so I know most of them. For me, what’s important is how I position myself in the middle, as a referee. Shutting down my partisanship is the very first thing I have to do before making any decision.”

Hamdan also emphasized he didn’t work alone during the trial; all nine justices claimed equal share in deciding the fate of the nation.

And although none of the justices offered a dissenting opinion during the ruling, Hamdan said disagreements were not uncommon during the justices’ deliberation of cases.

“If we can’t settle on one conclusion, one can always offer a dissenting opinion,” Hamdan said.

Now that the ruling is out, Prabowo’s camp announced it will continue to take legal actions through the state administrative court (PTUN).

Hamdan declined to comment.

“I don’t have to comment on that, it’s outside the [constitutional] court. All rulings [on who can stake claim of the presidency] are final in this court,” he said, implying that nothing would be able to subvert Joko’s victory.

Hamdan did comment on statements made by Prabowo spokesman Tantowi Yahya shortly after the ruling was announced. Tantowi said the court had failed to represent “substantial truth and justice.”

“[Proceedings for] an election dispute are designed to be quick, that’s why the law only gives 14 days to settle [the complaint]. It’s basically only a matter of counting, so if one claims that their votes have gone missing, he has to provide evidence to support it. In this election dispute, the allegations were wide … [but] weren’t supported by evidence, so they were not proven,” he said.

“The court will only process structured, systematic and massive fraud if it results in a significant change in the tally.”

Hamdan agreed that many violations did take place in the July 9 presidential election, but they were minor.

The justices agreed the irregularities could not be considered as “structured, systematic and massive,” nor did they significantly alter the outcome of the final tally.

“So, does that mean that we didn’t take substantial truth into consideration?” he asked. “Justice has to be based on evidence and truth. Without them, there would be deviation.”

Questioned credibility

Hamdan, a successor of disgraced former chief justice Akil Mochtar, said work performance was the sole key to regaining the public’s trust after the court’s credibility was severely tarnished by Akil, who was sentenced to life in prison in June for receiving bribes in several regional election disputes handled by the court.

“We work as professionally as we can. As for credibility, we leave it to the public to judge. We don’t brag about our work. People wouldn’t believe us anyway,” he said.

Hamdan shared his thoughts on his biggest challenge as a justice.

“To maintain objectivity is the biggest challenge in our job. Sometimes, those who approach the Court with a case are people we consider friends or family members. So, how do we keep our objectivity? By simply seeing everyone as equal before the law,” Hamdan said.

“The fear of God is important as well, perhaps the most important, because essentially, we can hide from people, but we cannot hide from God.”
