  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Financial Services Authority (OJK) will follow up on a report about a Rp7.7-billion credit disbursement by the Kalibata branch of PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk to a dead person.

    OJK's deputy commissioner for banking supervision, Irwan Lubis, said on Friday that the Authority will investigate whether the lending involved the bank's internal parties.

    The OJK responded to a report that billions-worth of credit was given to O. Sugandi of Tangerang, a man ho died in 2003. The case surfaced after Sugandi's children discovered that their dead father is accused of having bad credits of more than Rp9 billion (Rp7.7 billion, plus interest).

    Heny, Sugandi's oldest child, found out that her dad's name was forged after the Tangerang District Court issued a letter to take-over the family's plot on May 6. The land was supposedly used as collateral in the lending contract. All four of Sugandi's children then decided to bring the case to the court.
