The Jakarta Post
Former youth and sports affairs minister Andi Mallarangeng was released from Sukamiskin Penitentiary in Bandung, West Java, on Friday afternoon.
He was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay Rp 200 million (US$15,017.28) in fines in July 2014 for being proven guilty in a graft case related to the construction of the Hambalang sports complex in Sentul, Bogor, West Java.
“Andi Alfian Mallaranggeng was released today at around 4 p.m. after he got 3 months furlough before his leave. But, he is still required to report to Sukamiskin Penitentiary,” said Syarpani, the spokesperson of the Law and Human Rights Ministry’s directorate general of penitentiaries, on Friday.
Andi, who was a Democratic politician and once the spokesperson for former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, was legally and convincingly proven to have misused his authority.
According to the Jakarta Corruption Court’s judge panel, Andi had misused his authority as a minister to enrich himself in a corruption case related to the Hambalang sports complex construction project, which resulted in Rp 463.6 billion in state losses. (hol/ebf)
