Ratu Atut gets 5.5 years for another graft conviction

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, July 20, 2017

Former Banten governor Ratu Atut Chosiyah has been found guilty and sentenced to five years in prison for her role in a graft case surrounding a 2012 project to procure medical equipment in the province.

The judges at the Jakarta Corruption Court also ordered the defendant to pay a Rp 250 million fine or serve an additional six months’ imprisonment in default.

Earlier, Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) prosecutors demanded the judge sentence the defendant to eight years in prison and impose a Rp 250 million fine.

Atut told the court she accepted the verdict.

The former governor was found guilty of misusing the budget for Banten’s health agency in 2012, causing Rp 79.7 billion (about US$6 million) in state losses.

Atut was indicted along with her younger brother, Tubagus Chaeri Wardana aka Wawan, who was accused of directly appointing the companies to carry out the project.

Ratu Atut is now serving a seven year prison term for bribing then Constitutional Court chief justice Akil Mochtar over an election dispute in Banten in 2013.

The former governor gained notoriety for building a political dynasty, with many of her relatives controlling strategic political posts in the province.
