Courting Justice

Bali News: Courting Justice

(3/17/2013)

A Dutchman, Jan Jacobus Vogle, living in North Bali, has heard Indonesian prosecutors demand on Thursday, March 7, 2013, a sentence of four years in prison and a fine of Rp. 150 million (US$15,000) as punishment for sexually molesting 8 under-aged girls in the village of Kaliasem, Banjar.

Vogle has consistently discounted accusations of pedophilia leveled against him by local parents and members of several child protection organizations.

Geoffrey Nanuliatta, the lawyer representing Vogle, told NusaBali that he would commence a vigorous defense of his client when the court reconvenes on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Nanuliatta said the evidence and witnesses presented in the proceedings do not support the charges against Vogle.

Statements initially accusing Vogle of sexual improprieties presented by eight children and their parents have now been formally withdrawn, replaced by statements from the same children and parents praising Vogle for his kindness and generosity. Other statements have listed donations made by the Dutchman to local schools and assistance given to needy families.

According to the defense lawyer, the only remaining evidence before the court is a video made of Vogle at the Buleleng police precinct. Nanuliatta promised he will demonstrate that the video being used against his client has been edited and no longer truthfully represents his actual statement to the police.

The trial continues in close session on Wednesday, March 20, 2013.
