Throwing the Book at Corruptors

Prosecutors Seeking Record High Sentences in Corruption Case Over Parking Fees at Baliís Airport

(4/6/2014) Two of the men charged in the corruption of parking fees from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport have heard State Prosecutors call for record jail sentences as punishment for their crimes.

State Prosecutors are demanding prison terms of 14.5 years for the operational manager of Parking Authority - Penata Sarana Bali (PSB) Mekhael Maksi and PSB employee Rudi Sitorus.

If agreed by the panel of judges handling the case in which the State is estimated to have lost Rp 28 billion (US$2.45 million), these  punishments would represent the stiffest sentences ever handed down in Bali in a corruption case.

To date, the harshest sentence in a Bali corruption case was 6 years given to Arnawa, the former regent of Bangli.

In calling for the punitive sentences, prosecutors cited the uncooperative testimony presented to the Court by the accused.

Prosecutors are also seeking a Rp. 1 billion fine for each of the accused.

Two other officers of PSB are still undergoing trial in the same corruption case: the CEO of PSB Chris Wisnu Sridana and the company’s general manager Indrapura Barnoza.
