(1/25/2013)

Bali’s former chief of Tourism for the province of Bali (Kadisparda), I Gede Nurjaya, became an inmate at Bali’s Kerobokan prison on January 2, 2013, starting the final chapter on a long and sometimes tortuous journey through the legal system.

After undergoing a number of judicial reviews, Nurjaya was eventually sentenced to one year in prison for corrupting state funds. With credits for time served during the judicial process, Nurjaya will be eligible for release on March 13, 2013.

The final decision on appeal to imprison Nurjaya was handed down in May 2012, but local officials refused to put him behind bars until a formal copy of the court’s decision was issued to State prosecutors.

According to Denpost, the chief warden of the Kerobokan prison has confirmed that Nurjaya’s sentence will end on March 13, 2013.

The charges against Nurjaya, involving funds allocated for the island’s promotion at the World Travel Mart in London, prompted his arrest and detention on October 7, 2010. That trial resulted in a verdict of a one-year prison sentence that was appealed on May 12, 2013 to the higher courts. The appeal was successful with the court absolving Nurjaya on July 20, 2011.

Bali prosecutors, however, were unhappy with the results, and appealed the case to the Supreme Court where the original sentence of one year was ratified by the panel of judges in a decision dated May 1, 2012.

Nurjaya’s imprisonment on January 2, 2013 is the end result of the Supreme Court’s decision.

Upon arrival at the Bali prison Nurjaya was housed in Block J (Jempiring) for a period of adaptation with the prison environment before being moved to the general prison population for the remainder of his sentence.
