The state prosecutor, Nugraha, who was not satisfied with the sentence handed down on the convict, said he was asking for a death sentence and has not yet made up his mind whether to appeal the prison sentence or not.

Eneh's lawyer, Dolfie Rompas, on his part, said he was satisfied with the sentence but could still file an appeal on his behalf.

"In principle, we are satisfied with the verdict. However, we would think and consider about appealing it," Rompas said.

The court heard that Eneh, along with one Tuti Sudartika alias Dede Rosa and Rojali Pajar Saputra, were involved in a case of illegal possession of 6.3 kilograms of methamphetamine.
