Firli Bahuri Extortion Case: Police Confiscate Proof of Rp7.46bn Forex Exchange

23 November 2023 12:01 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The police confiscated evidence in the form of foreign exchange in the case of alleged extortion of Syahrul Yasin Limpo by KPK chief Firli Bahuri. The Jakarta Police's director of special criminal investigation, Sr. Comr. Ade Safri Simanjuntak, said the evidence shows proof of exchanging Singapore dollars and United States dollars.

"[We confiscated] forex exchange documents in SGD and USD from several money changer outlets with a total value of Rp7.46 billion between February 2021 and September 2023," Ade said at the Jakarta Police Headquarters on Wednesday, November 22, 2023.

The confiscation was carried out before KPK Chairman Firli Bahuri was named as a suspect last night. Firli was named a suspect after police investigators held the case's hearing at 19:00 at Polda Metro Jaya.

Ade Safri did not say who the foreign currency came from. He also did not confirm whether Rp7.46 billion was the amount of money Firli Bahuri allegedly extorted from Syahrul Yasin Limpo.

"That is the evidence we confiscated. Regarding matters of the the investigation material, we will give an update it later," he said.

Investigators previously collected various pieces of evidence after searching Firli Bahuri's shelter home in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta and his private home in Bekasi City.

Firli was named as a suspect and charged with Article 12e, Article 12B, and Article 11 of Law 20/2001 on the Eradication of Corruption Crimes. Firli had previously denied blackmailing anyone, and claimed that the accusations against him are a counterattack from corruptors.
