TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Metro Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Endra Zulpan said an Estonian national Sergei Putskov alias SP is facing 20 years in prison and a fine of Rp10 billion for an alleged fraud using an ATM skimming device. Zulpan said the 24-year-old foreigner is charged with multiple articles.
The suspect is subject to Article 363 of the Criminal Code and/or Article 30 in conjunction with Article 46 of Law No. 19 of 2016 concerning the Electronic Information and Transactions or ITE Law and/or Articles 3, 4, 5 of Law No. 8 of 2010 concerning Prevention and Eradication of Money Laundering (TPPU).
“The multiple articles are expected to provide a deterrent effect to the perpetrators of theft through skimming even though the perpetrators are foreigners. If [the crime] is committed in Indonesia, the law applied is Indonesian law,” said Zulpan during a press conference at Jakarta Metro Jaya HQ, South Jakarta, Monday, June 27, 2022.
Two people on the most-wanted list (DPO) abroad
Other than SP, there are two other people on the police’s most-wanted list (DPO). “[One of them is identified as] MARK, who is an Estonian compatriot of the suspect, and the other owns a Telegram account named Lady Brown,” Zulpan explained.
According to him, the two people were the ones who gave instructions to the suspect in stealing customer data. They did not reside in Indonesia, hampering the police to launch an arrest.
“We have already had their name and they’re on the DPO. We will cooperate with other agencies,” said Zulpan.
