The Jakarta Corruption Court on Thursday sentenced Trinanda Prihantoro, an assistant to PT Agung Podomoro Land (APL) president director Ariesman Widjaja, to two years and six months in prison for his involvement in a bribery case related to the Jakarta Bay reclamation project.
He is also required to pay a Rp 150 million (US$11,298) fine or face an additional three months’ imprisonment.
“We declare that the defendant, Trinanda Prihantoro, has been proven guilty for jointly committing corruption with another defendant,” Jakarta Corruption Court Presiding Judge Sumpeno said on Thursday, referring to Ariesman, who was sentenced to three years in prison and must pay a Rp 200 million fine.
The judges ruled that Trinanda had only delivered the Rp 2 billion bribe on Ariasman’s bidding. The money was allegedly for Mohammad Sanusi, a city councilor, who is being tried in the same case.
Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) personnel arrested Sanusi and Trinanda as they exchanged a briefcase full of bills on Dec. 31, 2015. Ariesman surrendered to the KPK the day after.
The money was allegedly paid to ensure Sanusi would support a bylaw revision that would lower the percentage of additional contribution APL would have to pay to the Jakarta Administration as part of the reclamation project. (bbn)
