Two years ago the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested several individuals along with the then regent of Talaud Islands in North Sulawesi. All parties were found guilty of corruption. The disgraced Regent Sri Wahyumi Maria Manalip was punished to four years and six months in prison. Sri decided to go for a Reconsideration. To everyone’s surprise, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of her, and reduced her sentence to only two years in prison. Sri Wahyumi was released on April 28, 2021, only to be arrested again by the KPK on April 29, 2021. The KPK officially named Sri Wahyumi a suspect in a new corruption case.
