TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian Anti-Corruption Community (MAKI) reported a prosecutor of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) to the Prosecutors Commission on Friday, July 24, 2020, for allegedly meeting fugitive Djoko Tjandra.
“Meeting a wanted person is a wrong move, and he/she did not even make a report to his/her superior. So I handed it to the Prosecutors Commission to explore it,” said MAKI coordinator Boyamin Saiman at the AGO in South Jakarta, Friday, July 24.
In his report, Boyamin presented evidence of photos displaying the meeting of the prosecutor and the fugitive. Boyamin, who believed both people met abroad in 2019, blurred the face of the prosecutor.
The Chairman of the Prosecutors Commission, Barita Simanjuntak, pledged he would follow-up on the report. He said he would verify the evidence and contact the AGO. “Whether it has been checked or not. If done, we will ask for the examination results. If not, we will do the clarification,” Barita added.
As widely reported, Djoko Tjandra’s escape allegedly involved several parties, including the AGO and the National Police. Three police generals have been dismissed from their positions after being proven to have helped the fugitive enter and exit the country.
