Lawyer of Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok), Fifi Lety Indra, said she has informed her client that the judicial review was rejected by the Constitutional Court (MK).
“Yes, [Ahok] was made aware of it,” Fifi told Tempo in a text message on Thursday evening, March 29.
Fifi, together with Josefina Agatha Syukur who is also Ahok`s lawyer, paid a visit to the Mobile Brigade (Brimob) detention center at Kelapa Dua, Depok to inform her brother in person.
However, Fifi was not keen to answer Tempo’s question about the former Jakarta Governor’s reaction to the news.
Ahok was sentenced to two years of imprisonment by the North Jakarta District Court for blasphemy and he did not file an appeal.
Ahok submitted a judicial review for the judge’s wrongful conviction. However, the panel of judges reviewing his case, led by judge Artidjo Alkosar, rejected the former governor’s judicial review.
