Sumatran voice – There was a news report claiming that judge Wahyu Iman Santoso was dismissed directly by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi).
The news stated that Judge Wahyu was sacked by Jokowi because he was incompetent in investigating the Ferdy Sambo case. In his narrative, Jokowi then replaced Hakim Wahyu with someone else.
Information on Judge Wahyu being fired by Jokowi was shared on a YouTube channel called Roda Politik on February 8, 2023.
The narration conveyed in the 8-minute video is as follows:

“FINALLY, JOKOWI WAS FIRED, JOKOWI WAS STOPPED FOR FERDY SAMBO, PAK JOKOWI IMMEDIATELY REPLACED THIS PERSON”
So is this claim true?
Based on a search conducted by Turnbackhoax.id – the Suara.com network, the video claim stating that Judge Wahyu was fired by Jokowi is false information.
In fact, the uploaded video does not match the information between the title and the content of the video, regarding judge Wahyu who was removed by Jokowi and replaced by someone else.
In addition, there is no evidence that President Jokowi interfered in the trial of Ferdy Sambo by removing Judge Wahyu.

Precisely the content discussed in the video is a discussion of an article uploaded on ayobandung.com with the title “Bribe Judges Through Envelopes, Prosecutors Request Envelopes from Attorney Arif Rachman Opened, Filled with money?”
The contents of the article only alluded to the alleged envelope given by lawyer Arif Rachman to the prosecutor (prosecutor) containing a bribe, but upon further investigation it appears that the contents of the envelope were not bribe money, but only a flash drive.
Until the end of the video, there is no statement about Judge Wahyu being directly removed by Jokowi, as shown in the thumbnail image of the upload.
From the explanation above, it can be concluded that the claim stating that Hakim Wahyu was fired by President Jokowi is false information and is included in the category of misleading content.
