Skalanews - House of Representatives member from Hanura Party faction Miryam S Haryani was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment and fine of Rp200 million subsider 3 months in jail.

The Jakarta Corruption Court judge considers Miryam guilty of providing false testimony in the hearing.

"The defendant Miryam S Haryani has been proven legally and guilty of giving false information in corruption cases," said judge Frangky Tambuwun when reading the verdict in the Corruption Court of Jakarta, Monday (13/11).

Miryam's acknowledgment of being pressed and threatened by KPK investigators is not proven. When confronted by three KPK investigators, Irwan, Ambarita Damanik, and Novel, Miryam was known to be given the opportunity to read, correct and to sign the investigation report (BAP).

It was also reinforced by the forensic psychologist's testimony stating there was no pressure from the investigators in the Miryam's vetting video.

"Considering the psychologist's testimony in the trial that she did not find any pressure on Miryam's examination, because of the short question of the investigator and answered by Miryam in length. The expert said it can be concluded there is no pressure in the examination. But if the observation is related to the process of examination (deny) the correct pressure is an indication of the lie given by the defendant," explained judge Anwar.

The Assembly also mentioned the statement of Miryam who denied the receipt of money from the defendant Sugiharto's e-ID card case was incorrect. From the facts of the trial it was known that the money was called received by the staff of Miryam, and handed over to Miryam's house.

"The statement of defendant Miryam who argued was inversely related to what Irman said, Sugiharto, Yosep Sumartono, and Vidi Gunawan. Miryam received four times, USD 500 thousand, USD 100 thousand, Rp5 billion and Rp1 billion, which was escorted to the house of defendant Miryam in West Tanjung and Rp1 billion was handed over to the assistant's personal assistant. So that denial has no legal reason," he explained.

On that fact, Miryam is considered proven to violate Article 22 juncto Article 35 paragraph 1 of Law Number 31/1999 as amended by Law Number 20 Year 2001 concerning the Eradication of Corruption in juncto Article 64 paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code.(Bisma Rizal/Frida Astuti/dbs)
