    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Lawyer of Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok), Fifi Lety Indra, asserted a chance for Ahok and Veronica reconciliation has been closed. She said mediation during the trial will not happen.

    "I don’t know, only God can answer," said Fifi, who is also Ahok`s sister, at the North Jakarta District Court, Wednesday, March 7.

    The divorce trial of Ahok and Veronica has entered witness examination phase. The mediation during the trial was not done since Veronica and Ahok refused to attend and handed over the decision to the panels of judges.

    At the sixth trial at North Jakarta District Court, Wednesday, March 7, a pastor with the initials Y from the church where Ahok and Veronica worshiped was presented by Ahok as the plaintiff. "Basically, mediation won’t take place as witness already presented," said Fifi.

    The closed trial lasted about an hour and the next trial scheduled on March 14.

    Ahok filed a divorce to North Jakarta District Court through his legal counsel, Josefina A. Syukur and Fifi Lety Indra on January 5, 2017. Fifi explained the report was due to the presence of another man in Ahok and Veronica Tan's marriages.
