BIN still hunting 28 graft fugitives
Sutiyoso, the director of the National Intelligence Agency (BIN), has said BIN and other law enforcement institutions will continue to hunt at least 28 fugitives who live in other countries after the arrest of Samadikun Hartono and Hartawan Aluwi.
Samadikun, convicted of graft for misusing the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Support (BLBI), was arrested in China, while Hartawan, convicted of corruption at Bank Century, was arrested in Singapore.
“There are still 28 people who we have to find. We will continue to hunt them,” said Sutiyoso as reported by kompas.com.
Samadikun, a former Bank Modern president commissioner, fled the country in 2003 to avoid imprisonment. He arrived at Halim Perdana Kusuma Airport in East Jakarta on Thursday night.
Samadikun feld after a Supreme Court ruling sentenced him to four years in prison for misusing BLBI funds for Bank Modern. He was accused of embezzling Rp 169 billion (US$12.9 million)
Meanwhile, Hartawan, who was flown from Singapore to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, was sentenced to 14 years in a Bank Century corruption case that produced state losses worth Rp 3.11 trillion. The case was handled by the National Police. (bbn)
