High Court Upholds 17-Month Jail Term for Panda Nababan
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The Jakarta High Court upheld a 17-month jail term issued by a lower court ruling for Panda Nababan, for his role in the Bank Indonesia bribery scandal.
The Anti-Corruption had in June sentenced Panda to 17 months for receiving hundreds of millions of rupiah in travelerís checks in exchange for voting for Miranda Goeltom during the 2004 central bankís deputy governor election. Prosecutors had previously accused the defendant at the time of coordinating his factions to vote for Miranda.
Prosecutors alleged that Panda, an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) lawmaker, was the one who coordinated his factions in voting for Miranda, and thus demanded three years jail for the senior politician.
The High Court ruling was read out on Wednesday by a panel of judges comprising of Roosdarmani, Widodo, Haryanto, As'adi Al Ma'ruf and Sudiro.
In the ruling, the judge regarded the anti-corruption verdict to be appropriate.
