A panel of Jakarta Corruption Court judges has sentenced former Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Task Force (SKK Migas) chief Rudi Rubiandini to seven years in prison and ordered him to pay Rp 200 million in fines or be charged with an additional three months in prison should he fail to pay the fine.
Presiding judge Amin Ismanto said Rudi was proven guilty of accepting bribes from various parties, which tainted the government's attempts to eradicate corruption. Kompas.com reported on Tuesday.
Commenting on the ruling, Rudi said, while holding back tears, that he accepted the verdict.
Rudi Rubiandini was found to have accepted US$ 900,000 and $200,000 in bribes from Widodo Ratanachaitong of Kernel Oil Private Limited. Rudi was also found to have pocketed US$ 522,000 in bribes from Artha Meris Simbolon of PT Kaltim Parna Industry.
In addition he was found guilty of accepting bribes from his colleagues at SKK Migas through his golf trainer Deviardi. Rudi's sentence was lighter than the 10-year sentence that had earlier been sought by prosecutors.(dic)
