Other names included Jiwasraya former Finance Director Hary Prasetyo, Jiwasraya former President Director Hendrisman Rahim, and Jiwasraya former head of the investment and finance division Syahmirwan. The six defendants are currently on trial before the Jakarta Corruption Court.
Apart from the graft charges, two defendants — Heru Hidayat and Benny Tjokrosaputro — are being accused of involvement in money laundering.
Following further investigation, 13 investment management companies and an official of Financial Services Authority (OJK) are also named as suspects in the Jiwasraya case.
Another case is related to the recent escape of graft convict Joko Soegiarto Tjandra, also known as Djoko Tjandra, who was involved in the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case two decades ago.
He had been on the run for 11 years before he was arrested in Malaysia in July 2020. Before his arrest, prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari allegedly met with him when he was still on the run abroad.
Following a series of internal investigations, she was found violating ethics after going abroad nine times without permission in 2019.
Recently, the AGO’s junior attorney for special crimes (Jampidsus) named Pinangki as a suspect in the alleged bribery case in connection with graft convict Djoko. She allegedly received about $500,000 in bribes. She has been detained and removed from her position. The matter is still under further investigation.
