Allegations of extortion attempts in schools

Last month 63 principals of government junior high schools in Indragiri Hulu regency in Riau province resigned en masse. The school principals said that they were victims of extortion attempts involving representatives from the Indragiri Hulu prosecutor’s office non-governmental organization.

They resigned due to the undue pressure they were subjected to when managing the government-led school operational aid (BOS).

Following investigations, six officials from the prosecutor’s office were allegedly found abusing their power and accepting bribes.

However, only three of the six prosecutors have been named as suspects in the case by the AGO’s junior attorney for special crimes. They were allegedly extorting 650 million rupiahs ($44,300) from the school principals in 2019. The three prosecutors are currently detained in Jakarta. The matter is still under further investigation.
