Radar Bali reports that a German businessmanm, Gunther Meyer, has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for committing a Rp. 9 billion (US$967,000) fraud against a business associate in the salr of shares in the Hotel Melka, located in Lovina, Buleleng, North Bali.

Prosecutors in the case had demanded a sentence of two years for Meyer for defrauding Michael Barg, a Danish national, in the trial held in the District Court of Buleleng. The sentence against the German hotelier was handed down on Thursday, August 9, 2012, in a trial with chief judge Made Ngurah Atmadja presiding.

Atmadja ruled Guther Meyer guilty of violating Section 372 of the Indonesian Criminal Code (KUHP) dealing with fraud and sentenced him to 18 months imprisonment less time served.

Upon hearing the sentence the prosecution declared their intent to consider appealing the sentence against Meyer that they felt was too lenient, while the lawyer defending Meyer declared his client's intent to appeal the prison sentence of the court.

The substance of the court’s guilty verdict revolved around an offer made by Meyer to Barg to invest in his hotel project, offering a 25% share for Rp. 9 billion that did not materialized.

The lawyers for Barg told the press that they are filing a separate civil action to seek the missing Rp. 9 million from Meyer.
