Former youth and sports minister Andi Mallarangeng has been declared “fully free” after completing his prison sentence at the Sukamiskin Penitentiary in Bandung, West Java, on Wednesday.

He was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay Rp 200 million (around US$15,000) in fines three years ago after being proven guilty in a graft case related to the construction of the Hambalang sports complex in Sentul, Bogor, West Java.

Bandung correctional facility center official Budiana said Andi would no longer be required to report to the prison’s authorities or attend legal counseling.

Pak Andi can take his release letter now," Budiana said as quoted by tempo.co.

In April, the former Democratic Party politician was granted three months furlough, allowing him to leave the prison, although he was still required to report to the Sukamiskin Penitentiary.

The Hambalang case also incriminated Andi's brother, Andi Zulkarnain "Choel" Mallarangeng, who was sentenced to three-and-a-half years' imprisonment and a fine of Rp 250 million on July 6. (kuk/ebf)
