A legal case that dates back to 2009 has entered a new phase following a Supreme Court decision that will send Jakarta businessman Paul Handoko to prison for 3 months.

After being freed on appeal in 2010 following his conviction for assault of Radar Bali (Jawa Post Group) photographer, Miftahuddin Halim, Paul Handoko now looks certain to spend some months in the Bali prison. A decision of the Supreme Court has declared Handoko guilty of knowingly using falsified documents in a matter before the law. This was in connection with a case of falsifying land and building certificates for the Villa Batu Jimbar, Sanur, held by a Singaporean businessman.

In the decision of the Supreme Court the presiding judge sentenced Paul to three months prison under the criminal code.

This means that the lower court’s demand of 6 months from public prosecutor Nyoman Sucitrawan was reduced to just 3 months in the appeal process.

On March 14, 2012, the junior administrator for the criminal division at the Denpasar District Court, I Gede Rantam, confirmed that he had received a copy of the judicial ruling on November 24, 2011.

Meanwhile, the public prosecutor, Sucitrawan, confirmed separately that he, too, had received notification of the Supreme Court’s decision. Unfortunately, his office is precluded from executing the sentence against Paul Handoko until complete documents relating to the Court’s decision arrive in Denpasar.

“We have just been informed that the case against Paul Handoko came down with a sentence of three months in prison. We have yet to receive a complete copy of the decision. Later, after we receive formal notification, will we execute the sentence by sending a summons to the convicted man. If, for instance, he does not answer we will ask the assistance of the police,” said Sucitrawan
