12 November 2021 08:50 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Jakarta Court of Appeal has sentenced the former Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Edhy Prabowo to 9 years behind bars.The court’s chief justice assessed that the prison time in Eddy’s first degree court verdict failed to provide a sense of justice for the public. 

The Supreme Court’s website on Thursday, November 11, wrote that “the imposition of the main criminal offense on the defendant does not reflect the sense of community justice that should have been handled extraordinarily.”

“Moreso, the defendant who was a Minister who led the Fisheries and Maritime Affairs Ministry, easily ordered his men to commit misconduct,” the verdict reads, Antaranews reported. 

The Jakarta High Court appeals panel eventually increased the length of Edhy’s imprisonment and added a fine of Rp400 million with additional obligation to pay compensation of  Rp9,687,457,219 and $77,000.

The Jakarta Corruption Court (Tipikor) previously handed Edhy Prabowo a 5-year jail time. The court of appeal classified the former Minister’s crime as an extraordinary crime.
