Indonesia: Supreme Court rejects KPK’s appeal against not-guilty verdict for former PLN chief

The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down an appeal filed by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) against a not-guilty verdict given to the former president director of state-run electricity company PLN, Sofyan Basir.

Last year, the Jakarta Corruption Court cleared Sofyan of all charges in connection with bribery related to a coal-fired power plant (PLTU) project in Riau.

“The appeal was turned down because according to the judicial panel, the judex facti, or decision made by the Jakarta Corruption Court, was correct in front of the law,” Supreme Court spokesperson Andi Samsan Nganro said on Wednesday as reported by kompas.com.
