The analytical method used by researchers is content analysis. Based on the case that the authors have found through the review of the decision, there is a case handling that is not in accordance with the principle of equality before the law. One of them is that the perpetrators of corruption received a verdict as status as city arrest, which means they have exclusive rights.
