Manager and Owner of Feyloon Chinese Restaurant in Bali Sentenced to Six-Months Prison for Criminal Assault

(2/14/2014) In the lengthy trial of the foreign owner and general manager of the Feyloon Chinese Restaurant in Kuta, Bali for their criminal assault on a Bali travel agent, Frederick Wong Yu Fai (45) and Wong Fei Wah (45) were both sentenced to 6 months imprisonment by the Denpasar District Court on Thursday, February 6, 2014.

The sentence handed down by the court was 2 months less than the 8-month jail term sought by State Prosecutors.

As reported by NusaBali, the presiding judge in the case, Sugeng Riyono, declared that both men had been proven to have assaulted Hendra Haryanto resulting in minor injuries in an August 4, 2013 attack in a parking lot across from their restaurant.

The judge said the failure of the two men to admit their crime weighed against them in the final sentencing of the court, while the court took their polite demeanor and the fact that they had never been convicted of a past crime in the defendant’s favor.

The lawyer for Haryanto who was attacked by the two men protested the verdict, saying the Court's verdict lack compassion or a sense of justice.
