(9/15/2013)

Two Timor Leste nationals, Manuel Hedrique Soares and, his purported lover, Joaninha Maria Graciet Verdial Viera, have been sentenced to two-years and three-months imprisonment for kidnapping a French toddler in Bali in June 2013.

Presiding Judge Hadi Masruri handed down the verdict on Thursday, September 12, 2013. The punishment was less stringent than the
Three-years and six-months sought by State prosecutors.

The Judges also imposed a fine of Rp. 60 million on each of the defendants, failure of which to pay will add an additional 6 months to each of their sentences.

In rendering the verdict, Judge Masruri said it had been proven that the defendants had criminally kidnapped the child and also committed the theft of private property when they brought 2-year-old Logan Bertrand Nicholas Mattei from his hotel in Kuta and attempted to sell the child to an orphanage in North Bali.

The woman had met the boy’s father, Christophe Mattei, at the Bounty Discotheque in Kuta. Invited back to his hotel for the night, the man awoke to find his personal belongings, a sum of cash and his son all missing.

Police managed to track down the boy with the help of hotel staff and a CCTV camera installed at the property.
