TRIBUNJABAR.ID – The question of when Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok is free from prison appears in public.
Ahok was sentenced to two years imprisonment by a panel of judges at the North Jakarta District Court on May 9, 2017.
The former governor of DKI Jakarta was caught in the case of religious blasphemy.
Ahok also attempted to be free by filing a judicial review (PK) but was rejected by the Supreme Court.
Currently, Ahok still languishing in Detention Center Mako Brimob Kelapa Dua Depok, West Java.
One of Ahok’s lawyers, I Wayan Sudirta had said Ahok could be released in August this year.
He says this by considering remissions received by Ahok.
“Ahok has got a remission of Christmas and remission opportunities on August 17, plus the provision of undergoing two-thirds of the penalty,” said his lawyer, I Wayan Sudirta some time ago.
“For now, later on Christmas, Mr. Ahok will get a 15-day automatic penalty reduction, as a special remission provision as a Christian,” I Wayan Sudirta told Ging Ginanjar from BBC Indonesia, December 20, 2017, quoted from Tribune Pontianak, Compass.
“SK is not there yet, but later just a process of formality only, because the remission is automatically applicable provisions according to Keppres 174/1999,” he added.
In the Decree, Wayan explained a special 15-day remission was given to inmates who celebrate religious holidays and have been serving sentences for at least six months.
There is also a general remission, ie a reduction of the penalty as of August 17th.
The general remission of the condition is already undergoing one year of imprisonment.
Ahok did not get a general remission on 17 August, because he just went to jail on May 9, 2017.
In addition, I Wayan Sidarta also said Ahok can take other remissions.
“For example because in prison good behavior, meritorious to the state, doing things that are useful for fellow inmates, and others.”
Regardless, there is also a provision on parole after serving two-thirds of the sentence.
In a rough count, beyond remission, Ahok will have undergone two-thirds of his term in September 2018.
But with a 15 day Christmas remission, plus a general reminder of Independence Day, then Ahok can be free at least on 17 August.
At other times, the sister and lawyer who are members of Ahok’s legal team, Fifi Lety Indra, said Ahok will be purely free by early 2019.
It was delivered when a guest star on Najwa Records published on Monday (16/4/2018).
“Depending on the remission or baseball, the remissions of how many months or how many days.Yesterday only 15 days, we wait August 17 how many days.Then December how many days.If pure free I think early in 2019, deh,” said Fifi.
Even so, Fifi said Ahok still has the possibility of being able to be free this mid-year by proposing a policy of free of charge conditional as I Wayan Sidarta.
However, the Ahok has not decided it and still will see the conditions that occur.
“Yes, if we are parole, but it’s risky, yes, one year later, we do not know yet, we still have a lot of considerations, we see the situation and conditions, now people are frightened, while still in prison,” said Fifi.
