Former Christian governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, has been set free after serving nearly two years in prison for ‘blasphemy’, according to CBN News. 

He said he doesn’t regret his imprisonment, saying,  “If we could go back in time and someone asked which would you choose (going to prison or winning the election) I would say I choose to be imprisoned at Mako to study for two years, so that I could maintain self-discipline for the rest of my life,” he wrote in an Instagram post a few days before he was released. “If I were re-elected, I would have become more arrogant, rough, and I would have hurt people.”

His son Nicholas Sean posted on Instagram a photo of them together, saying: “He’s back. My dad’s a free man! Thank you everyone for the support.”
