JAKARTA: The Supreme Court sentenced local thug John Kei to 16 years in prison for his involvement in the murder of businessman Tan Harry Tantono aka Ayung.

The country'€™s highest court handed down the verdict on July 24, adding four years to his sentence. John was arrested at a hotel in Pulo Mas, East Jakarta, on Feb. 17, 2012, for his alleged involvement in the murder of Ayung.

He had allegedly ordered his gang members '€” who also stood trial at the same court '€” to kill Ayung, because the businessman was reluctant to pay John'€™s fees for his debt-collecting services, which amounted to Rp 200 million (US$21,000).
