The youngest daughter of former Indonesian President Suharto has been found guilty of firearms charges.
Siti Hutami "Mamiek" Endang Adiningsih was put on probation for 30 days by the Central Jakarta district court for failing to report the loss of her .22 calibre
Colt, according to the Jakarta Post.
The judge, Asep Iwan Irawan, told the Post that, regardless of who the defendant was, an owner of a firearm must immediately report its loss.
Former President Suharto has suffered several strokes
"Why do you think firearms, most of them untraceable, fall into the hands of robbers and murderers?
"It's because gun owners lease their guns to criminals, or owners fail to report the loss of their firearms," he said.
Mamiek's reason for not immediately reporting the loss was that she had been busy taking care of her ailing father, the Post said.
If she breaks any law during her probation period she will receive a 10-day jail term.
Reports say Mamiek was arrested after police and prosecutors searched her home last month while looking for her fugitive elder brother, Tommy Suharto.
Police have been trying to apprehend the flamboyant multi-millionaire since 3 November when he failed to turn himself in to the authorities to serve an 18-month jail term for corruption.
Tommy is the first member of the Suharto family to be convicted of corruption.
The police's failure to find him has become a major embarrassment for the government of President Abdurrahman Wahid, who has vowed to fight corruption.
His father, former President Suharto, was charged with embezzling $571m dollars earlier this year.
But the trial was aborted in September when judges accepted medical evidence that he was too ill to understand the case against him.
Prosecutors are now making another attempt to revive the trial.
