Jakarta ex-governor freed from prison after blasphemy sentence
JAKARTA: Jakarta’s former governor has been released from prison, his assistant said Thursday, nearly two years after his blasphemy conviction fanned fears over religious intolerance in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority nation.
Basuki Tjahaja Purnama — the Indonesian capital’s first non-Muslim governor in half a century and its first ethnic Chinese leader — left Mako Brimob prison in Depok, outside Jakarta, at around 7:30 am local time, Ima Mahdiah told media.
Supporters of the former governor, who is popularly known as Ahok, gathered outside the prison, chanting and cheering his new-found freedom.
The release ends one of the most tumultuous chapters in Indonesian politics in recent memory.
Purnama had been a popular politician who won praise for trying to clean up the traffic-clogged megacity and clamp down on corruption before his imprisonment.
But his downfall came quickly after comments he made on the campaign trail during a re-election bid saw him accused of insulting Islam.
The filmed remarks, which went viral online, sparked mass protests in Jakarta, spearheaded by radical groups opposed to a non-Muslim leader and encouraged by his political rivals.
He lost the election to a Muslim challenger and was then sentenced to two years’ jail in May 2017.
It was an unusually harsh sentence — prosecutors had only recommended probation for the now 52-year-old.
“He was picked up by his son Nicholas Sean Purnama” after being released, his assistant Mahdiah said. “He will spend time with his family first, resting.”
Purnama’s case drew international headlines and a wave of criticism, including from the United Nations, which urged the country of 260 million to revise its decades-old blasphemy law.
The charge against him centred on a remark he made to voters about his Muslim rivals using a Koranic verse to trick people into voting against him, which judges ruled amounted to blasphemy against Islam.
