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.
