TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Attorney General's Office (AGO) has handed over the case files of the alleged CPO export permit corruption to the Central Jakarta District Attorney on Monday, August 1. After that, the prosecutors' team will immediately prepare an indictment in order to have the case tried at the Central Jakarta Corruption Court.

The information was revealed by the AGO's head of Legal Information, Ketut Sumedana, Monday.

There are five suspects in the case; Indrasari Wisnu Wardhana, the Trade Ministry's former director general of foreign trade; Master Parulian Tumanggor, commissioner of Wilmar Nabati Indonesia; Stanley MA, senior manager of corporate affairs at Pelita Agung Agrindustri/Permata Hijau Group; Picare Tagore Sitanggang, general manager of general affairs at PT Musim Mas; and Lin Che Wei, founder and policy/analysis advisor at PT Independent Research & Advisory Indonesia, whose services were used by the Trade Ministry.

After the transfer of suspects' files, they will be detained for 20 days until August 20.

The suspects are charged with violating laws on corruption. "The actions of the suspects in this case resulted in a state economic loss of around Rp18.33 trillion," he said.

The CPO export permit graft had also implicated former Minister of Trade Muhammad Lutfi, who acted as the supervisor of suspect Indrasari. In June, Lutfi was called in to testify as a witness by the AGO.
