Saharuddin explains , there are several other reasons which he considers very principle and make it refused help win Prabowo - Hatta . The first reason , as human rights activists ( HAM ) , Saharuddin judge Prabowo not resolve the case as alleged human rights violations .
" The word camp Prabowo , it is considered a problem of the past . Precisely here the problem is , how do you like the same commitment if such enforcement . Highly counterproductive and burdening me , " he said .
In addition, said Saharuddin , he also lamented that Prabowo position appointed Hatta Rajasa as his running mate . Because , Hatta failing to set an example in the case of law enforcement when a deadly accident in Jagorawi some time ago that ensnared his son , Rashid Rajasa . In that case , he said , there is injustice . As a political leader and minister , Hatta judged participate intervene so that his son free from heavy penalties .
" There is absolutely lawless , whereas perforated sandal thief could be imprisoned , " he said .
