(6/15/2012)

The King of Denpasar, Ida Tjokorda Ngurah Jame Pemecutan IX (68), also known as Cok Samirana, has been sentenced to 2 years in prison for committing property fraud causing losses of Rp. 7.6 billion (US$817,000).

The presiding judge in the case, John Tony Hutauruk, declared the evidence presented in the case demonstrated that Cok Samirana had committed fraud as defined by the Indonesian Criminal Code.

As reported by Radar Bali, the case involved a property transaction for 10 hectares of land located on Jalan Badak Agung, in the Renon district of Denpasar. The land registered in the name of the Merajan Satria Palace (Puri Satria) was offered for sale without seeking the agreement of the royal household.

“The defendant convinced his victim that he had the right to sell the parcel of land,” said Judge Hutauruk.

The sentence of two years was one year less that the three years imprisonment sought by prosecutors.

Upon hearing the sentence, Samirana’s lawyer, I Gusti Ngurah Made Arya, immediately told the Court he would appeal the verdict and sentence. Similarly, the public prosecutor announced that his office was also considering appealing the leniency of the sentence given to the defendant.

Samarina’s lawyer denied his client had any intent to commit a fraudulent act, always planning to return the money paid to him by the property purchaser.

The case dates from 2006 when the victim in the crime, Lely Sri Mawarni, attempted to purchased the 10-hectare parcel of land from Samirana at a price of Rp. 75 million (US$8,00) per are (100 square meters). Mawarni paid Samirana a deposit of Rp. 15 billion (US$1.6 million) in three installments. When it came time to make an additional installment of Rp. 7.6 billion (US$817,000) Mawarni demanded to see an original land certificate for the land that Samirana was unable to produce.

In November 2006 the Puri Satria formally wrote to Mawarni advising her the land was not for sale. After trying to get her deposits returned by Samirana, the woman eventually filed a criminal complaint against the King in January 2009.
