Very moving, a judge named in the Court of Indonesia Marzuki waschoked with a description of the offender who pleaded guilty to an old lady and steal potatoes.

In the room of justice, a judge sat pondering check charge to a grandmother accused of stealing potatoes. Grandmother appeals that her life was poor, her son is sick, and grandson in hunger. But the owner of the farm manager still maintain that this should be made a lesson to the others.

The judge sighed and said, “Excuse me, ma’am,” he said as he looked at the grandma.

“I can not stretch the law, the law remains the law, so you should be punished. I am punishing you Rp 1 million (about RM350) and if you can not afford to pay then you should go to jail for 2.5 years, as required by the law. ”

The grandma was reversed fatigue. But suddenly the judge took down his judge hat, opened up his wallet and then took out Rp 1 million and put inside his hat and said to the audience who were in the courtroom.

“As a judge of justice, I am also dropping a fine on each of those present in this courtroom, amounting to Rp 50 thousand (about RM17), because living in this city, and allowing a person to starve and have to steal to feed her grandchildren.

“Civil registry, please collect the fine in my hat and give it all to the defense.”

Before the hammer hit, the grandmother have raised funds of Rp 3.5 million, and some have been paid to the court to pay a forfeit. After that she returned with a happy face and touched with the balance of Rp 50 thousand including the money paid by the estate manager who make the claim.

一個感動人心的故事。一位在印尼的法官,Marzuki,帶著難過的心情審判著一宗偷竊案。一位老奶奶被控偷竊木薯。這位老奶奶訴說著自己的狀況,她的家境貧窮,孩子病了⋯⋯,孫子挨餓,不得已的情況之下才偷木薯的。可是木薯園的經理堅持要把她控上庭,以示懲戒。

這位法官讀了控詞,吸了一口氣,看著老奶奶說:「對不起,奶奶。我不能夠不遵守法律,法律終究是法律,所以我要判你有罪,你需付罰款一百萬印尼盾(大約等於RM350),否則必須坐牢兩年半。」

老奶奶哀傷無力的低下了頭。突然間,法官把法官帽摘下,從錢包裡掏出了一百萬印尼盾,放進了法官帽。然後對著法庭裡所有的人說:「在公正的名義之下,我也要判處這裡的所有人有罪,罰款是每人五萬印尼盾(大約RM17),因為在這個城市生活的你們,竟然讓一個人挨餓,以致她必須偷竊食物給她孫兒吃。」

法官把帽子傳了出去,在場的每個人都付了五萬印尼盾,包括了木薯園的經理。

在退庭之前,已經獲得了三百五十萬印尼盾的罰款。這些錢用作替老奶奶繳付罰款,老奶奶帶著快樂又感動的心情把剩餘的錢帶回家。
