Zumi Zola Sentenced to 6 Years in Jail, IDR 500 Million Fine

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Jakarta Corruption Court sentenced non-active Jambi Governor Zumi Zola six years imprisonment and a fine of Rp500 million, which could be replaced with a 3-month jail sentence. The court also stripped Zumi off of his political right for five years after undergoing the penalty.

"Court finds that defendant Zumi Zola guilty of carrying out corruption practices together,"  said Yanto reading the verdict at Jakarta Corruption Court today, December 6, 2018.

The panel of judges announced that Zumi was found guilty for receiving graft money worth IDR 37.4 billion, USD 173.000, and SGD 100.000 throughout February 2016 up to November 2017. Zumi also obtained one unit of Toyota Alphard.

According to judges, the graft was delivered by numbers of partners, namely Muhammad Imadudin alias Iim, Agus Herianto, Endria Putro, Nicko Handi, Rudy Lidra, and Jeo Fandy Yoesman alias Asiang, among others.

The judges said Zumi received the bribe through three people whom he trusted, Apif Firmansyah, Asrul Pandapotan Sihotang, and head of Jambi PUPR Agency Arfan.

In addition, the panel of judges announced the actor was proven to bribe members and speakers of Jambi Regional Legislative Council (DPRD) with a total of Rp16.34 billion for the agreement of the region’s draft budget to be the Regional Budget in 2017 and 2018.

The sentence was lighter than demands issued by the prosecutor of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) which was eight years behind bars and a fine of Rp1 billion for a subsidiary of jail sentence.
