Consigned to the Compost Heap for 2.5 Years

The former regent of Jembrana, Professor I Gede Winasa, has been finally ordered to prison for 2.5 years and fined Rp. 100 million (US$8,700) by the Indonesan Supreme Court in connection with his role in the corruption that occurred in the purchase of composting machinery.

The corruption case came to light during Winasa’s second term of Regent of Jembrana when a compost factory stopped operating only several years after its inauguration.

A police investigation commenced by the Bali police in 2009 led to Winasa’s incarceration in January 2011 and was based on proof that he had approved the purchase of defect composting machinery from a Japanese company for 43 million Yen outside stipulations for approved protocols on competitive bidding.

In July 2011 the District Court in Jembrana found Winasa not guilty on all charges and ordered his release.

Unhappy with that outcome, State Prosecutors appealed to the Supreme Court who found the former regent guilty and imposed a penalty of 6 years in prison in July of 2013. On final appeal to the Supreme Court his sentence was adjusted to 2.5 years behind bar.
