Public prosecutors have demanded varying sentences for the two provincial tourism officials charged with mishandling Bali's tourism promotion budget.
The men are charged with seeking double reimbursement of the cost of participation at the World Travel Mart in London from both the provincial and national tourism budgets.
At the Denpasar district court, Gede Nurjaya, the former head of Bali Tourism (Kadiparda) saw prosecutors ask for a punishment of four years imprisonment, a fine of Rp. 100 million (US$11,100) and a restitution to the government of Rp. 48,870,852 (US$5,430).
In a separate trial, Gusti Putu Putra Ambara, an assistant of Nurjaya when he served as Kadiparda, has prosecutors calling for a prison sentence of 1.5 years, a fine of Rp. 100 million (US$11,100) and restitution of Rp. 48,870,852 (IS$5,430).
The trial of the two men continues in separate courtrooms of the Denpasar District Court.
