TEMPO.CO, JakartaRatna Sarumpaet confirmed that she would not file an appeal for the two-year prison sentence given by the South Jakarta District Court. This was conveyed by Atiqah Hasiholan, Ratna's daughter, at the Metro Jaya Regional Police, yesterday.

Atiqah said that her mother is tired and wants to "focus on finishing the book during these times. In the last few months."

Atiqah was just visiting her mother at the detention room of Polda Metro Jaya, Tuesday, July 16. She said that Ratna's decision is also based on the fact that she only has one year of the sentence left.

"She considered that, with two years and remissions, She would be out soon," Atiqah said.

The court ruled that Ratna Sarumpaet was guilty of spreading a fabricated story about an assault against her than never happened. The judge sentenced Ratna to two years in jail, saying that her lies had caused public unrest.
