The Jakarta Anti-Corruption Court on June 16 demanded a life sentence and a fine of 846,000 USD be handed down to former Constitution Court Chief Justice Akil Mochtar, the harshest sentence for corruption in Indonesian history, if he is found guilty of graft and money laundering.

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested him last October on allegations that he had rigged the results of regional election disputes.

Prosecutors accused him of taking bribes and laundering over 13.6 million USD in 15 separate election disputes from October 2010 -2013.

Prosecutors also demanded that the court revoke Akil’s voting privilege, a punishment handed down under Indonesia’s anti-corruption law.-VNA
