In the photo above, you can see Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno’s parents [right] present as well.

We were warmly welcomed by the Chief Judge of Acheh’s Syar’iyah Court and several other judges and court officials.

While waiting for the briefing to start, Kartika’s family spent a few minutes studying the displays and notices at the lobby of the Syariah Court.
