French Document Reveals Prabowo's Alleged Unreported Luxury Asset

8 July 2022 13:52 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A document has emerged containing records that suggest Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto owns a property in the form of a luxury apartment in Paris, France. Tempo and French media L’obs obtained the document stating the politician had bought the asset back in 2005 for the price of 1.79 million euro, or roughly Rp27.37 billion in today’s currency. 

Citing the document, the apartment was purchased by a company called Pradic which was later signed on behalf of Subianto. The property firm that sold it was Pierre Immobiliere which was represented by Monsicur Bernard Bismuth who acted as the co-manager at the time. 

The sale was also assisted by Paris’ notary head office public notary Maître Muriel Lievre for 1.79 million euro excluding the 80,000 euro commission for Pierre, the 25-page report stated. 

The document explains that Prabowo bought the property to be used as a residence. Some personal information about the former Commander General of the Special Forces Command (Danjen Kopassus) was also written in it, ranging from his place of birth to his marital status. 

"Mr. Prabowo Subianto is an Indonesian businessman," the document reads.

The apartment is located in a building complex on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré Street, 8th arrondissement, Paris, France. Precisely in a six-story high building with a courtyard behind it and located in lot number 12 where Subianto owns the 212 square meters second floor that has three bedrooms.

Tempo tried to confirm the asset ownership to Prabowo Subianto himself by formally requesting an interview on March 11, 2022, that was sent to his offices at the Defense Ministry, Gerindra Party headquarters, and his personal residence in Kertanegara, South Jakarta, and in Hambalang, Bogor. Unfortunately, none of the letters were responded to.

Subianto’s spokesperson Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak on Thursday, July 7, briefly commented by stating “I will have to check on it first.”

This overseas property was not mentioned in the Defense Minister’s electronic wealth reporting (LHKPN) of 2021 and only states assets of 10 land plots and building structures in South Jakarta and Bogor with a total value of Rp275.32 billion and Rp1.258 billion in transportation assets.
