    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Attorney General's Office (AGO) has opened up the potential to arrest corporations as suspects in the Jiwasraya graft case.

    "It could [happen], potentially. That’s why we are now in the stage of completing six files of the suspects," said the Director of Investigation at the Deputy Attorney General Office for Special Crimes, Febrie Adriansyah, in his office on Friday, 14 February 2020.

    According to Febrie, after the six files have been examined, investigators will re-examine the possibility of other parties being involved. “Are there only six [suspects], or there are more who are responsible,” said Febrie. 

    In the Jiwasraya case, the Attorney General's Office has named six suspects. They are president commissioner of PT Trada Alam Minera Heru Hidayat, president commissioner of PT Hanson International Tbk Benny Tjokrosaputro, former president director of PT Jiwasraya Hendrisman Rahim, former finance director of PT Jiwasraya (Persero) Hary Prasetyo, former chief of the Jiwasraya investment division Syahmirwan, and director of PT Maxima Integra Joko Hartono Tirto.

    All six suspects in the Jiwasraya case are being held in different detention centers. Investigators have also seized the assets of the suspects in the form of luxury vehicles, apartment units, securities accounts, savings accounts, deposits, documents, computers, land certificates, and gold. Until now, all assets confiscated are still being calculated.
