Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna H. Laoly ensured that the Government pays scrupulous attention to the case of Baiq Nuril, a non-tenure female teacher at SMAN 7 Mataram senior high school, West Nusa Tenggara, who was sentenced to six months in prison and a fine of Rp500 million for recording a lewd phone call between her and her alleged sexual harasser, after her petition for case review was rejected by the Supreme Court (MA).
“We will discuss this matter later in the afternoon. According to the law, she cannot seek a clemency because a prison sentence had to be at least two years long, while in her case it is six months,” Yasonna told reporters after attending a plenary cabinet meeting, at the Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java, Monday (8/7).
