Indonesian term or phrase: mengadili sendiri
Anyone familiar with court terms?

What is the equivalent of "mengadili sendiri"?

Is it "stand alone trial" or "self administration of law"?

Thanks.

make judgment on own authority
Explanation:
"mengadili sendiri" means makes an own decision, discarding judgment made by lower/other court.

This usually applies to high court or supreme court because there is court(s) lower than them. :)

Jawabannya bagus. Memang benar bahwa konteksnya adalah tentang Putusan MA yang menganulir putusan pengadilan negeri mengenai suatu kasus pidana. Apakah "ADMINISTERING JUSTICE INDEPENDENTLY" memiliki "rasa" yang sama dengan "making judgement on own authority"? Sepertinya masih harus mencari susunan kata yang pas supaya lebih berasa. Anyway, thanks for the answer. It's truly helpful.
