(7/11/2014)

Agustinus Brata Kusuma, the Captain of a local dive boat that brought a group of Japanese women scuba divers on a diving expedition off Pantain Sakenen on Nusa Penida in which two of the divers lost their lives has been sentence to three years in prison.

Unrepresented by legal counsel due to a lack of funds, Kusuma was declared guilty of criminal negligence that resulted in the women's death.

Captain Kusuma was employed by a Bali Dive Operator Yellow Scuba operating the vessel Ocean Express.

The sentence was handed down in the Denpasar District Court on Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

In announcing the sentence, the Presiding Judge said the Captain's failure to keep careful track of his group of divers and the resulting 2 deaths and injuries damaged the reputation of Indonesian tourism. He declared that the Captain had failed to adequately plan and prepare for a voyage at a time of the month when seas were known to be treacherous.

The sentence handed down by the Court was half of the 6-year sentence sought by Prosecutors.

In accepting the verdict, Kusuma said, while weeping before the Court, that he would not appeal the Court's decision and begged forgiveness from the victim's families, claiming he had no intention to cause death or injury, but had fallen victim to weather conditions when the accident occurred on February 14, 2014.
