—On 2013, Indonesian court had pronounced two
progressive sentences which were distinct to identical sentences
on previous years. Both sentences declared that Brazilian
Embassy and USA consulate were culpable upon deposing one
of their local employee without paying severance money as
regulated by Indonesian Labor Laws. The court had disposed
the embassy and the consulate’s immunity claim against any
Indonesian legal proceedings. Although those sentences were
lacking of international law argument, they had serious concern
on Human Rights protection enforcement on local employee
who possesses weaker standing than the employer. They were
also in tune with European court sentences which have
discarded absolute immunity.
