TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Former Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Minister Sudirman Said disregarded police report filed against him, submitted by Institute for Policy and Budget Analysis Alliance (Alaska), as a seasonal slander that often arises during a moment of significance.
“Another similar example was when I handled the gas and oil mafia and the time of the 'Papa Minta Saham' case and the time I ran as a candidate for governor,” said Sudirman in a written statement on Tuesday, March 26.
He claimed that yet another slander is being aimed at him while he is taking the role of Prabowo Subianto – Sandiaga Uno’s campaign team (BPN) debate director.
“I casually respond to such allegations. I’m used to these situations,” said Sudirman who also claimed to know the mastermind behind the police report.
Previously, Alaska coordinator Adri Zulpianto claimed the alleged graft took place back in 2015 when the Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKK Migas) handled the Shorebase Supply Services project in Lamongan and Gresik, East Java, valued at Rp571 billion.
