Artalyta does not deserve parole: Minister



Law and Human Rights Minister Patrialis Akbar says graft convict Artalyta Suryani will not be granted parole anytime soon.

“No parole has been granted. The directorate general for correctional facilities has not decided anything,” Patrialis said as quoted by kompas.com in Depok, West Java.

Patrialis also affirmed that Artalyta was in the same cell at Tangerang Penitentiary, Banten.

Artalyta was sentenced to four years in prison and did not receive a remission after she violated rules by obtaining a luxury cell through bribes.

She was originally due to be released in mid-February 2011.
