Court Can Force Police to Reveal Account Details
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Abdul Rahman Ma’mun, Central Information Commission director, said that information requests in regard to fat bank accounts owned by police officers were legally enforceable. “The commission has stated that the policy is legally enforceable and can be executed,” said Abdul in Bandung on Wednesday.
Abdul added that Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) had requested information about several suspicious accounts. ICW has asked for information on 17 accounts belonging to police officers. The Information Commission via an adjudication court has decided to pass the request.
“What [the ICW] was asking is the name of the account owners and the amount [of deposit] in the 17 accounts owned by Indonesian National Police (Polri) officers that were cleared by an internal audit. Because of that clearance, we decided to reveal [the accounts],” Abdul continued.
The National Police slammed the ruling and decided to escalate the legal process through the State Administrative Court (PTUN).
“During that [legal process], the Polri revoked their plea. Because of the revocation, the Information Commission decided that the policy was legally enforceable,” Abdul continued.
