Aceh Sharī'a High Court Appeal Decision Number 02/JN/2018/MS

The Aceh Sharia High Court in this verdict overrules the punishment handed out to the defendant of a rape case by Lhoksumawe District Sharia Court. The initial punishment of 125 public lashes was deemed disproportional by the high court judges due to the involvement of firearms in the act. The court also considers the severe sociological and psychological trauma that the victim had suffered and changes the punishment to 125 months of imprisonment.
