KPK: Acting Regent of Sorong & BPK Officials Officially Suspects in Bribery News – 8 minutes ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) named 6 people as suspects in the corruption case involving the acting Regent of Sorong. The six suspects consist of officials from the Sorong Regency Government and officials from the Financial Audit Agency (BPK) of West Papua Province.

“We have named a suspect,” said KPK Chairman Firli Bahuri in a press conference at his office, Jakarta, Tuesday, (14/11/2023).

The six suspects named are Acting Regent of Sorong Yan Piet Mosso; Head of Sorong BPKAD Efer Segidifat; Sorong BPKAD staff Maniel Syatfle. Yan Piet and his subordinates were named as suspects in giving bribes.

Meanwhile, the three other people named as suspects are the Head of West Papua BPK Representative Patrice Lumumba Sihombing; Head of West Papua BPK Subaud Abu Hanifa; and Chair of the Examination Team David Patasaung. BPK officials were named as suspects who received bribes.

Firli said that Yan Piet and his subordinates were suspected of giving money in connection with the conditioning of the audit report carried out by the West Papua BPK. Initially, a BPK leader issued a letter of assignment for an Inspection with Specific Purposes (PDTT) for Sorong Regency for the 2022 and 2023 budgets.

“From the results of the inspection, the BPK found a number of financial reports that could not be accounted for,” said Firli.

Based on these findings, Yan Piet et al then established communication with the BPK audit team. From that communication, they agreed to give a certain amount of money so that the BPK’s findings could be erased.

Firli said that in this case the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) had confiscated an amount of Rp. 940 million and 1 Rolex brand watch. Apart from that, the KPK also suspects that the amount of money flowing to BPK officials is estimated at IDR 1.8 billion.

This corruption case was revealed through a sting operation carried out by the Corruption Eradication Committee (KPK) from last Sunday to Monday. In the OTT, the KPK arrested a total of 10 people and 6 of them became suspects. After this announcement, the KPK immediately detained 6 suspects for the first 20 days in the KPK detention center.
