TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Attorney General ST Burhanuddin confirmed that the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) had never taken off the name of Joko Tjandra from the red notice. To date, he was still examining who removed the fugitive from the wanted list.
Burhanuddin further ensured that he would not file a revocation of the red notice to the Interpol via the National Police until the fugitive was arrested.
“The red notice cannot be annulled forever until the fugitive is caught, but the fact is like that,” said Burhanuddin in his office, South Jakarta, on Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
The Attorney General added that his side was still having coordination whether the red notice has been reactivated or officially revoked.
Regarding Joko’s travel letter to Pontianak, he claimed to be not aware who gave the permit. However, he stressed that his side was pursuing and would soon arrest Joko. “I don’t know about the travel letter,” he added.
The fugitive in the Bank Bali debt case reportedly evaded the immigration records when he entered and left Indonesia. The AGO and the National Police blame each other. The Interpol National Central Bureau (NCB) allegedly had a role behind the revocation of Joko Tjandra's red notice.
