Illegal logging suspect walks free in Padang

Can we all agree that this is really stupid behavior yet? It wasn't even my idea...

The Padang District Court freed an illegal logging suspect Wednesday after finding the prosecutor's charges groundless.

Presiding judge Betty Aritonang acquitted Thedy Anthony, a suspect in an illegal logging case on Sipora Island, Mentawai Islands, of all charges.

Thedy, director of PT Andalas Terang Nusantara, was put on trial in 2005, when the Padang Prosecutor's Office accused him of felling trees in a state-owned forest.

The prosecutor demanded he serve six years in jail for causing a Rp 7.3 billion (US$793,478) loss to the state.

Some 13,000 cubic meters of timber, claimed as belonging to the company, was seized by police while being shipped out of Mentawai.

However, the panel of judges found the indictment groundless. The court said it was not proven that the timber came from state-owned land and there was no evidence or witnesses to support the charges.
