Prosecutor wants 15 years for Budiman

Kompas - April 15, 1997 (Abridged from Tapol)

The prosecutors in the nine cases against PRD activists in two district courts in Jakarta presented their summing up to the court on Monday 14 April.

The accused all refused to attend the hearings in the two Jakarta courts, protesting at the treatment of witnesses and evidence during earlier hearings. Some of the defence lawyers also walked out of the courts after the judge decided to allow the prosecutor to read out the summing-up even though the accused were not present in court.

The following are the sentence demands made by the prosecutors:

  • Budiman Sudjatmiko, 15 years
  • Garda Sembiring, 13 years
  • Pranowo, 10 years
  • Eko Kurniawan Kabid, 9 years
  • Suroso, 8 years
  • Petrus H. Haryanto, 12 years
  • Ken Budha Kusumandaru, 6 years
  • Victor da Costa, 3 years
  • Ignatius Putut Arintoko, 3 years

Meanwhile in courts in Surabaya, the prosecutors have asked for the following sentences:

  • Dita Indah Sari, 8 years
  • Coen Husein Pontoh, 6 years
  • M. Sholeh, 5 years

The trials in Jakarta will resume on Monday 21 April to hear the defence statements by the defendants.
