TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Deputy Chief of Center of Report and Analysis of Financial Transaction (PPATK), Agus Santoso stated several arrested graft suspects are not new troupers. PPATK has been tracking down those names even before the law enforcement agencies uncovered the cases.
“A criminal cannot just suddenly show up and got arrested. They must have committed a crime for quite a while,” Agus said during a talk-show,Saturday. He added PPATK was not aware of the suspects’ physical appearances, not until the law enforcement arrested and convicted them. Same thing happens with Ahmad Fathanah, the suspect of graft and money laundering case of imported beef quota. Fathanah has been on PPATK tracking list for some time.
Today, the reporting input for PPATK has been extended. Financial service providers and Services suppliers have extended the ability of PPATK to receive and track suspicious data transactions. “Database has their names already. So when the Anti-Graft Commission (KPK) requests their names, details show up right away.”
