A panel of judges at the Jakarta Corruption Court has sentenced Risyanto Suanda, the former president director of state-owned Indonesia Fisheries Company (Perum Perindo), to four years and six months in prison for his involvement in a bribery case related to a fish import permit.
The court also ordered him to pay a fine of Rp 250 million (US$17,763) or serve an additional three months.
Risyanto was found guilty of accepting $30,000 from Mujib Mustofa, the president director PT Navy Arsa Sejahtera, in exchange for the latter’s use of Perum Perindo’s permit to import up to 150 tons of frozen Pacific mackerel in 2019.
