Jayapura, 13/6 (Jubi) – Kristianus Delgion Madai, who was on trial for the possession of 8 bullets, was sentenced to six months in prisoon.

Madai was arrested in February after officers found 8 bullets in his luggage  passed at the Sentani Airport.
“Madai was sentenced to six months in prison. It is lighter than prosecution demands of one year in prison,” Gustaf Kawer,  Madai’s attorney, told tabloidjubi.com in Abepura, Jayapura on Wednesday (11/6).

He said his client would appeal because.
“For us, this condition clearly shows injustice because he is not the owner of the eight bullets. He brought them but did not know that these items were in the bag. There are also witnesses to strengthen his argument, ” Kawer added.

Madai was charged under Article 1 Paragraph (1) of Emergency Law No 12 of 1951.
