    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian national police’s criminal investigation agency (Bareskrim) on Friday confiscated US$20,000 and named two police generals as suspects in the graft case of Joko Tjandra. Both generals are Insp. Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte and Brig. Gen. Prasetijo Utomo. 

    The National police headquarters has named both of them suspects in the Joko Tjandra case, which linked them to the withdrawal of the red notice for the fugitive. 

    “[Prasetijo Utomo and Napoleon Bonaparte] are named suspects [for receiving bribes],” said National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Argo Yuwono on Friday. 

    Having been a fugitive since June 11, 2009, Joko Tjandra returned to Indonesia in March. Not only was he easily able to arrange a new ID card in South Grogol subdistrict, South Jakarta, he also managed to file a request for a re-examination of the case involving him at the South Jakarta District Court.
