(5/20/2012)

The former head of the Bali Government Tourist Service (Kadisparda), I Gede Nurjaya (58), may be heading back to prison.

Nurjaya, convicted of corrupting funds for Bali’s tourism promotion in May 2011 and sentenced to one year in prison, was subsequently released on appeal in July 2011 after spending 11 months in Jail, including the period leading up to his actual trial.

Prosecutors, however, were disappointed with the decision of the appeal court and brought Nurjaya's case to the Supreme Court. According to Radar Bali, the Supreme Court has accepted that appeal filed by the public prosecutors and affirmed Nurjaya's original conviction for corruption.

The Supreme Court final ruling is that Nurjaya was proven to have stolen RP. 97 million (US$10.540) in promotion funds. It is not clear, however, at this point if, in making its ruling, the Supreme Court has affirmed, reduced or increased the prison penalty for Nurjaya. This information was missing in the preliminary announcement issued by the Supreme Court.

Nurjaya was charged with corrupting promotional funds in collaboration with another provincial tourism official, Gusti Putu Putra Ambara. Tried separately and both sentenced to one year in prison, Ambara accepted the decision of the first court and is now a free man after serving his sentence

Nurjaya was released after spending nearly 11 months in jail due to the decision of the initial appeal court. But, now, due to the decision of the Supreme Court, Nurjaya must prepare for the possibility that he will soon be returned to prison.
