TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is currently investigating the alleged involvement of other parties in the Bank Century corruption case based on the obtained evidence.
“The investigators have detailed the actions of each party and have exposed it to the KPK leaders,” said KPK spokesman, Febri Diansyah on Thursday, May 17.
KPK has just named the former Deputy Governor of Bank Indonesia (BI) Budi Mulya as a convict in the Century case. Budi has been named a suspect since 2013. The panel of judges at the Corruption Court sentenced Budi to 10 years in prison. At the cassation level, the Supreme Court escalated Budi's sentence to 15 years.
At that time, the judge of Supreme Court Artidjo Alkostar declared that Budi was guilty of misusing his authority in the provision of short-term funding facilities (FPJP) and the determination of Bank Century as a failed bank created the systemic impact. The Century case is said to cause a state loss of up to trillions of rupiah.
Febri did not specify the names of other parties being investigated by KPK. However, KPK Chairman Agus Rahardjo once said that his institution is investigating the role of 10 people suspected to be involved in the case, adding that he had assigned the investigators to map the role of those 10 people.
In Budi’s indictment, KPK prosecutors mentioned 10 names of other BI officials who are assumed to be responsible in the Century case. They are the former BI Governor Boediono, former Senior Deputy Governor Miranda S. Gultom, as well as five former BI deputy governors, namely Muliaman Hadad, Siti Fadjriah, Budi Rochadi, Hartadi A. Sarwono, and Ardhayadi M.
The Secretary of the Financial System Stability Committee Raden Pardede, as well as the President Director of Bank Century Hermanus H. Muslim and Bank Century shareholder Robert Tantular were also mentioned in the indictment.
In the appeal verdict against Budi Mulya, the Supreme Court judge stated that Budi was found guilty of committing unlawful acts together with the officials named in the indictment.
