The Attorney General'€™s Office (AGO) has filed an appeal against the verdicts handed down to Ricksy Prematuri and Herland bin Ompo, the Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI) contractors, who were involved in a graft case that centered around the company'€™s bioremediation project.

The AGO'€™s spokesperson Setia Untung Arimuladi said on Thursday that they had filed the appeal with the Supreme Court earlier this week.

'€œProsecutors believe that the [Jakarta High Court] judges handed down verdicts that they considered unfair because the jail terms are two-thirds less than what they demanded,'€ he said.

In May, the Jakarta Corruption Court sentenced Ricksy and Herland bin Ompo, to five and six years in prison, respectively, for their role in CPI'€™s bioremediation program that caused more than US$3 million in state losses.
