Putu Wijaya Short StoryA brilliant young lawyer visiting his father, a senior lawyer who is highly respected by law enforcement.
"But I come not as a son," said the young lawyer, "I come here as a young lawyer who wanted to uphold justice in this country were in turmoil."
Old lawyer who was bearded and graying beard, was not surprised. He looked at his son from his wheelchair, and then replied in a voice calm and majestic.
"What would you like about, young man?"Young lawyer was stunned. "My father asked me?""Yes, to you, not as my son, but you as the endspearhead the search for justice in a country being torn apart this corruption. "The young lawyer smiled."Well, then, you know what I mean."
"Of course. I also once young like you. And I'm also willing, if need be insolent. I separate between family matters and personal interests with the struggle for justice. Unlike most lawyers who are now trading. In fact, unlike the elites and intellectuals brilliant when he was out of power, but became more savage and cruel as the opportunity to trample justice and truth that had diberhalakannya. You're definitely not too far from how I was doing when I was young. You've read my resume recently written in a campus abroad is not it? They called Hungry Lion. I do not ever stop chasing thieves who lodged in the justice institutions and high-rise buildings. It is they who have created a culture of crime in this country. You can learn a lot of the book. "
The young lawyer smiled. She lifted her chin, trying to look like a warrior for justice who is now a toothless tiger that, although the remnants of prowess is still felt.
"I did not come to oppose or compliment you. You with all your history is too large to be discussed. Although not free from criticism. I have a series of corrections to policies that you have done. And I was too small to oppose even the not too worthy of praise. you've not require censure or praise again. Because you're not the only justice that is clean, you are always successful and perfect, but you also is justice itself. "
The old lawyer grimaced."I'd rather you call yourself me and call you. So we can talk seriously as a professional, Justice Hunters.""It all did not escape the results gemblenganmu unforgiving!"The old lawyer laughed."You have started again with praise-praise!" pieces of an old lawyer.Young lawyers by surprise. He woke up on his mistake and apologized.
"No problem. Do not subsided. Tell me what you say," continued the old lawyer calm, as he raised his hand, enjoying also the compliment, "do not limit yourself. Do not kill yourself with descriptions-descriptions that will trap you into a doctrine -the doctrine of frozen, naturally flowing Just like spring, like the voice of nature, because you really needed by this nation. "
The young lawyer was silent for a long time to formulate itself. Then he continued his speech with a more calm.
"I come here want to hear your voice. I want dialogue.""Good. Begin. Speak freely."
"Thank you. Well. Not long ago I was commissioned to defend the country a great villain, who rightly gets the death penalty. The family was excited to come to my house to express happiness, that ultimately the state fair enough, because it provides a first class advocate for them. But I flatly refused. Why? Because I'm sure, the state does not actually charged me to defend him. State just wanted to showcase a spectacular theater, that in a very deplorable state law, there have been a new awakening. Criminals of the most cruel, was given a mighty defender like Mike Tyson, it's not istilahku, I borrow from what's on sale in the newspaper observers justice for all football-terjangku, because I always managed to win all cases that I handle.
I want to say no to the state, because the search for justice should not be a theater, but the quest for justice is absolute only if necessary danbeku cold. But the country also continues to urge the various ways that the task I have received. There I began to think. There's no way all of that for no reason. Then I did an in-depth investigations and find facts. As a result, conclusion, the state has played a charade. State wants to show to the people and the world, that evil is defended by anyone, still evil. If the state can still throw the bastard was up to the last point penalty by firing squad, despite being defended by the defense team as I do, then the state will get a double victory, for victory is surely a landslide victory and clean, because I was a guarantee. State about to make me as a loser. And that's what I'm about.
Countries should believe that justice can not but be with justice that is clean, as you've done so far. "
The young lawyer paused to allow time for a senior lawyer was listening. Then he went on.
"But I did not come here to ask for your consideration, whether the decision to reject it right or not. I came here because after the state received either refusal, the bastard himself came to the place kediamanku and respectfully request that I may be willing to defend him."
"Then you accept?" The old lawyer cut suddenly.The young lawyer was surprised. He stared at the old lawyer by surprise."How do you know?"
Old lawyer stroked his beard and lift his eyes to see into the distance. Just for a moment, but as if he had sailed thousands of miles. Taking a deep breath and then he said: "For I know who you are."
Young lawyers now take a deep breath."Yes I accept it, because I'm a professional. As a lawyer I can not refuse any person who requested that I perform my duty as a defender. As a defense attorney, I serve those who need my expertise to assist courts exercise the judicial process in order to reach a fair decision -fair. "
Old lawyer nodding his head in understanding."So that's what you want to ask?""Among other things.""Then you've got my answer."Young lawyer was stunned. He stared, trying to find out what lies deep within the old man."So my steps are correct?"The old man stroked his beard again.
"Do not question the truth. But you have shown yourself as a professional. You reject a bid countries, because behind the offer was not only no attempt at pursuit of truth and justice as you pursue in your profession as a lawyer, but there was no purpose political ends. However, the same offer of a criminal, even a good thank you, no matter the person who deserved shot to death, because as a professional you can not refuse those who ask for help to defend you from the practice court for gross finding the most appropriate justice. Originally it did without threats and without bribe money! You do not defend it because of fear, is not it? ""No. Absolutely not!""Not because of money?""No!""And for what?"The young lawyer smiled."Because I'm going to defend him.""So he won?"
"There is no victory in the hunt for justice. That there is only an attempt to close what is more correct. Because the real truth, the truth is most true we may be just a dream that will never be achieved. Lose-win is not a problem anymore.'s Efforts to pursue a the most important. For the sake of honor that process, I take as my client. "Pensive old lawyer."What is my answer wrong?"The old man shook his head.
"As you said earlier, right or wrong is not a problem. There is only possible if you defending him, you would work out as winners."
"Do not underestimate the prosecutors who are appointed by the state. I heard a very tough team that will be deployed."
"But you'll win.""Just his case has not been started, how to know I'll win."
"For years I lived as a lawyer. The decision can be read even if the trial has not started. Not because the material the case, but because of the questions a side. You're too big to lose now."
The young lawyer laughed a little."That's a compliment or a warning?""Praise.""Just so you honest.""I'm honest.""Really?""Yes!"
The young lawyer smiled and nodded. Squinting old and started shooting again."But you accept the defense of criminals, not because of fear, is not it?"
"No! Why should fear?""They did not threaten you?""Threatening what?""The amount of money that is too large, in the end also is a threat. He did not give the numbers?"
"No."The old lawyer was surprised."There is absolutely no talk about how they will pay you?""No.""Wow! That's not professional!"The young lawyer laughed."I never make money from the distress of people!""But what if he's to win?"The young lawyer was silent."What if he's to win?""The state will get an important lesson. Do not mess with the evil!""So you're going to win the case?"The young lawyer did not answer."That means yes!""Yes. I'm going to win it and I'll win!"
The parents were shocked. He leaned his body lay. His hands caress his chest. When the young started to speak again, he raised his hand.
"Do not you repeat again, that ye do it not because of fear, not because you bribed.""Yes. He asked for help, without threats and without a bribe. I'm not afraid."
"And you accept, without hope of getting back behind the service or protection later if you need, nor is it because you want to hunt publications and stars award from humanitarian organizations in foreign countries who hate your country, is not it?"
"Yes.""Then, come home to young people. No need ye falter.
Decision was correct. Enforcing the law is always beset by numerous allegations, as if you already have a disinterested outside of the pursuit of justice and truth. But all of undermining it would only add a compliment to you later, if you can keep listening to your conscience as a professional law enforcement. "
The young lawyer wanted to answer, but the lawyer does not give parents a chance."I guess there's nothing to discuss anymore. It's clear. You'd better go home now. Let me see my son, because I've been longing for him."
The young lawyer was so very touched. He stood up to hug his father. But the old man raised his hand and warned in a voice hoarse. Apparently tired and in pain.
"Go home now. Carry out your duty as a professional.""But ..."
The old lawyer closed his eyes and leaned back in his chair. His secretary is beautiful, then covered her body. After that she turned to a young lawyer."Sorry, I think the meeting should end here, sir. He needs lots of rest. Good night."
Whether it was melted by the smile on the lips of women who have very beautiful eyes, the young lawyer could no longer resist. He looked once more the old man with all respect and love. Then he put his mouth to her ear, his voice so not to wake the old man and whispered.
"Tell your father, that the evidence was collected by the state is too small and weak. Justice is too hasty. I'll win this case and that means it will free up bastards who feared and condemned by all the people in this country to fly off back as a bird in the air. And hopefully it will make our country is becoming more mature as soon as possible. Otherwise, we would be negligent nation. "
What prompted the young lawyer became a reality. With his brilliant and easily defeating the state in court and the king returned memerdekaan criminals. The bastard chuckling. He celebrated his victory with fireworks all night, and jumped into foreign countries, can not be touched again. People were angry. They burned and flowed like hot lava into the street, rushed with yells and giant posters. Raided and burned the courthouse. Judge rushed. The young lawyer was kidnapped, tortured and finally just returned after a corpse. But that was not enough. People continued to roar and was about to overthrow the legitimate government.
Terpagut old lawyer in his wheelchair. While the secretary read the news jelitanya malignancy spread across the country with a soft voice, tears trickling down the cheeks of the lawyer.
"When you come as a brilliant young lawyer and asked me to speak as a professional, my son," she moaned with great sadness, "I kept opening the door and expect you to come back to me as a son. Was not it me remind you, I miss my son. Have you forgotten that you are not only a professional, but also a son of your father. Not willing is the word you hear what a father to his son, when confronted with a case, where a major criminals who are freed will spark judicial folk like the disaster that hit our country this now?
