Indonesia: Former KPU commissioner gets six years in prison for election bribery

The Jakarta Corruption Court has handed down a six-year prison sentence for former General Elections Commission (KPU) commissioner Wahyu Setiawan after finding him guilty of accepting bribes in connection with an election dispute.

“Wahyu Setiawan has been proven guilty of committing corruption as suspected,” presiding judge Susanti Arsi Wibawani said while reading out the verdict on Monday.

The sentence was lighter than eight years of imprisonment demanded by Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) prosecutors. The judges also ordered Wahyu to pay a fine of Rp 150 million (US$10,240).
