If convicted, Auj-E Taqaddas could face a maximum 16 months imprisonment and a fine of Rp. 4.5 million.

A scientist specializing in the treatment of cancer, Auj-E Taqaddas has written a number of scientific treatises and has featured as a speaker at major medical conferences worldwide.

As reported by Balipost.com, Taqaddas displayed the same lack of restraint and undisciplined behavior that precipitated her initial arrest in July 2018.

When Auj-E Taqaddas appeared in court on Thursday, December 6, 2018, she chose to attend the session without a lawyer; demanded and was refused the return of her U.K. passport; and repeatedly interrupted the proceeding with questions, shouts and screams directed at the panel of judges.

The case before the court continues and Auj-E Taqaddas remains in detention.
