"We respect the decision," said Dahlan's lawyer Indra Priangkasa in Surabaya on Thursday (11/24).

The East Java Prosecutors Office named Dahlan as a suspect in a corruption case last month. The agency arrested him at the same time.

Judge Fernandinus mentioned Dahlan cannot challenge his status. He stated the East Java Prosecutors Office did not violate any rules.

"The investigation is according to the rule," he concluded.
