TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Police apprehended Heru Sulastyono, head of the sub-directorate of exports for the Directorate of Customs Excise Office, on Tuesday early morning at his ex-wife’s home in Serpong, Banten. 

Heru is suspected of taking kickbacks valued at Rp11.4 billion from Tanjung Jati Utama commissioner Yusran Arif in the form of insurance policies. Yusran also gave Heru two cars, a Nissan Terano and Ford Everest. Yusran himself was arrested early Tuesday morning in his home in South Jakarta. 

National Police director for business crime Brig. Gen. Arief Sulistyanto said Yusran is suspected of bribing Heru to avoid any audits on his company. 

The police have indicted the two men for bribery and money laundering. Head of the police’s money laundering sub-directorate, Agung Setya, said that Heru owns 20 bank accounts, two of which contain Rp5 billion and Rp2 billion. 

According to a Tempo source, the investigation into this case began when the Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) reported irregularities in Heru’s bank account. From 2009 to 2012, the PPATK said that transactions through Heru’s account reached Rp60 billion, including the one for Tanjung Jati Utama.
