Jakarta (ANTARA) - Presidential canddiates pair Prabowo-Sandiaga's attorney, Teuku Nasrullah, said that the conscience of the Judge was more important than neutrality.

"This is a matter of the conscience of the judge," Nasrullah said at the Constitutional Court on Thursday.

Nasrullah said that Prabowo-Sandiaga's legal team has presented strong arguments and provided strong evidence.

"I do not want to mention that the Court is not neutral. If we say that the Court is not neutral, it means we are in contempt of court (insult to the judiciary). But I am sure the people are not deaf and (will) hear the verdict," Nasrullah said.

Nasrullah said the legal team would not do anything after the verdict was read. "Because the Constitutional Court's verdict is final and binding. I think our task is completed," Nasrullah stated.

After the court has finished, Nasrullah will immediately report the results to Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno.
