Prosecutors seek 2-year probation for Ahok

Indonesian prosecutors on Thursday recommended two years of probation for outgoing Jakarta governor Basuki "Ahok" Cahaya Purnama, during his trial for blaspheming the Qur'an. The relatively light sentencing demand was made a day after Ahok was swept out of office by a landslide election victory for Anies Baswedan, a Muslim former minister backed by conservative clerics.
