Indonesian officials, including the country’s child protection minister, have also supported calls for Herry to face the death penalty, although the nation’s human rights commission is vehemently against it.

Wirawan was brought into court in handcuffs and kept his head down as the judge gave his ruling. The judge added that restitution for the victims will be paid by the government.
