The disgraced Governor of Southeast Sulawesi Nur Alam was named suspect by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in August 2016. Nur Alam allegedly abused his authority (and received compensation) in the process of granting mining permit to PT Anugrah Harisma Barakah (AHB) between the year 2009 and 2014.┬áThe trial started in November 2017 and he was found guilty earlier this year. But the KPK’s prosecutors were not satisfied with the verdict that they decided to file an appeal. On July 17, 2018, the Jakarta High Court accepted the appeal and aggravated Nur Alam’s punishment.To subscribe please click here
