TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The authorities said Thursday, August 11, that they had intensified a search for the owner of palm oil corporation PT Duta Palma Group, Surya Darmadi, a suspect in an alleged corruption scandal estimated to have caused state losses of Rp78 trillion, the largest amount in Indonesia's history.

As the latest move, the Attorney General's Office (AGO) asked the immigration authorities on Thursday to ban Darmadi from going abroad, despite the uncertainty of whether he was currently in Indonesia or not.

"We've already received the request from the AGO. The ban is valid up to six months ahead," Director of Supervision and Enforcement of Indonesia's Immigration Office I Nyoman Gede Surya Mataram said in a press release.

Surya Darmadi has been on the most-wanted list of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) since 2019. He has been named a suspect for accepting bribery related to a land use change of a 37,095-hectare oil palm land in Riau province that belonged to his company.
