(7/28/2013)

I Gede Winasa, the former Regent of Jembrana in Bali, has been dealt a crippling blow by the Indonesian Supreme Court that has overturned an acquittal handed down on July 1, 2011, and imposed a 6-year prison sentence, a fine of Rp. 500 million (US$50,000) and demanded compensation to the State amounting to Rp. 2 billion (US$200,000).

Failure to pay the fine will add 10 months to the 6-year sentence and failure to pay the required compensation will result in the forfeiture of personal assets for auction by the State.

Winasa conviction on appeal is in connection with corruption in the procurement of composting equipment during his term as Jembrana's leader.

The reversal of fortune for the former Regent of Jembrana was announced on Thursday, July 25, 2013 and was in response to State Prosecutors appeal of Winasa’s acquittal in 2011.

Claiming to be awaiting a formal copy of the Supreme Court’s ruling, prosecutors in Negara, Bali were not prepared to comment on Winasa’s case and the imposition of the prison term and fine.

Similarly, when Nusa Bali called three separate hand phone number used by Winasa for communicating with the media, all three numbers were inactive. A SMS sent to Winasa by the newspaper remain unanswered.

The decision of the Supreme Court reinstated the original penalties sought by State Prosecutors in the original trial. The original “not guilty” verdict handed down in 2011 shocked local observers in light of the fact that Winasa’s four associates in the original trial were all declared “guilty” and given sentences ranging between 1.5 and 6 years.

It remains unclear when Winasa will be taken into custody by prosecutors to begin serving his prison sentence.
