KPK Targets SOE Directors for Alleged Bribery in Singapore


SEPTEMBER 15, 2016

Jakarta. The national antigraft agency is teaming up with Singapore's Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau targeting a number of state-owned enterprise directors for allegedly receiving bribes in Singapore.

“SOE directors received some money in Singapore. There are such cases and the value [of transactions] apparently wasn't small,” Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Agus Rahardjo told reporters on Thursday (15/09).

He said the directors had opened Singapore-based bank accounts in order to allude to Indonesia's Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK).

“We are working to investigate it. We're playing it very carefully since we have cooperations with the CPIB,” he said.

He declined to identify directors implicated in the alleged bribery case.
