TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian Anti-Corruption Society (MAKI) planned to submit a list of witnesses allegedly involved in the Djoko Tjandra case to the National Police's Criminal Investigation unit (Bareskrim) today afternoon, August 10.
“This list of witnesses consists of four people, namely three private parties and one law enforcer. But I cannot disclose it first, please wait until I submit it,” said MAKI Coordinator Boyamin Saiman to Tempo on Monday.
One of the private parties rumored to be involved was TS. Yet, Boyamin was reluctant to comment further. “Later,” he shortly said, hoping the list could help the police in handling the case quickly.
Related to the police affairs, Djoko allegedly lobbied Brig. Gen. Prasetijo Utomo through his attorney Anita Kolopaking to issue a fake travel letter that was used to visit Pontianak on June 18, 2020. The police general even accompanied the fugitive to fly there.
In addition, Djoko asked Prasetijo to facilitate the issuance of a COVID-19 free letter. The National Police Chief Gen. Idham Azis then removed Prasetijo from the latter’s position and named him and Anita suspects.
Meanwhile, Djoko Tjandra was arrested by the Malaysian Police on July 30. He was now jailed at the Salemba Penitentiary.
