Idi Shari'a Court Decision No. 6 of 2011: Gambling Application Dismissed

The prosecution submitted that, on 19 April 2011 at around 9.00pm, the accused was found providing gambling facilities to the public. Specifically, the accused had been faciliting bingo-style (toto gelap) bets to Hong Kong. The prosecution submitted that this type of activity was in contravention of arts 5 and 23(1) of Aceh Qanun No. 13 of 2003 on Gambling.

On the grounds, however, that neither the prosecution nor accused attended court, pursuant to art 191(1) of Law No. 8 of 1981 on Criminal Procedure, the court dismissed the case and ordered that the state pay costs.
