Miryam gets five years in prison over perjury

KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. Jakarta Corruption Court judges sentenced former House of Representatives lawmaker Miryam S. Haryani to five years in prison after she was found guilty of committing perjury.

Reading out the court’s verdict in a hearing on Monday, presiding judge Frangki Tambuwun also ordered the former Hanura Party politician to pay Rp 200 million (US$14,760) in fines or serve an additional three months’ imprisonment in default.

The verdict was lighter than the sentence demanded by Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) prosecutors, who had sought eight years behind bars and fines amounting to Rp 300 million.

Both Miryam and prosecutors said they would think about whether they would appeal the verdict.

Miryam was convicted of being untruthful during investigation and trial processes of the high-profile electronic identity (e-ID) graft case.

The former politician told the court in March that she retracted all statements she had given to KPK investigators, claiming she had made those statements under the coercion of the investigators. The claim was dismissed by KPK investigators in their testimony in court on March 30.
