Indonesian Attorney General Sanitiar Burhanuddin has thanked the Singaporean authorities for permitting the extradition of Indonesian white-collar fugitive Adelin Lis to Indonesia, after he spent over a decade on the run.

“[Adelin Lis’] extradition is due to the efforts of the Singaporean government, especially the Singaporean Attorney General’s Office, and the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore,” said Sanitiar.

Indonesian officials brought Adelin back to Jakarta on a chartered Garuda flight from Singapore on Saturday evening. Attorney General’s Office spokesman Leonard Eben Ezer Simanjuntak asserted that he will undergo quarantine at the AGO’s holding cells in Salemba Penitentiary for 14 days.

Indonesian officials received news that Adelin was in Singapore, after Singaporean officials detained him since 2018 for attempting to enter the city-state on a fake passport in 2018.

The Indonesian Supreme Court sentenced Adelin to 10 years behind bars in 2008, after they found him guilty of corruption and illegal logging in the forests of North Sumatra Province’s Mandailing Natal Regency the year before.

They also fined him Rp. 119.8 trillion ($8,268,056,061.40), and required he pay an additional $2.9 million to replant the trees he felled.
