Wow! Former Customs Excise Officer Andhi Pramono Charged with Gratification of IDR 58 Billion News – 1 hour ago

Jakarta CNBC Indonesia – The Corruption Eradication Commission accused former Head of Makassar Customs and Excise Andhi Pramono of receiving gratuities amounting to more than IDR 58 billion. The alleged receipt of the money was read out by the KPK prosecutor during a trial at the Jakarta Corruption Crime Court, Wednesday (22/11/2023).

“Some of the gratuities were received directly or through bank accounts,” said KPK prosecutor Joko Hermawan in today’s trial.

The prosecutor detailed that the money Andhi received consisted of rupiah denominations and foreign currency. The details are IDR 50,286,275,189; US$ 264,500 (Rp. 3,800,871,000); and Singapore dollars 409,000 (Rp. 4,889,970).

The prosecutor said that Andhi received the money while serving as a Civil Servant (PNS) investigator at the Directorate General of Customs and Excise at the Ministry of Finance from 2009-2022. A number of positions Andhi has held include Acting Head of the Enforcement Section of the Regional Office of the Directorate General of Customs and Excise, Riau and West Sumatra (2009-2012); Head of Customs and Excise Services Section V, Customs Supervision and Services Office, Middle Type Customs B, Palembang (2012-2016); and finally Head of KPPBC Middle Type Customs B Makassar in 2021-2022.

While holding several positions, Andhi is suspected of receiving money from companies and entrepreneurs engaged in the export sector. There are 8 businessmen who are said to have given money to Andhi, including Suriyanto, a basic food entrepreneur in Karimun amounting to IDR 2.47 billion. Andhi received the money 32 times.

Apart from that, there was also businessman Rony Faslah who gave a total of IDR 2.79 billion to Andhi when he served as Acting Head of the Enforcement Section of the DJBC Riau Regional Office. An expedition entrepreneur named Rudi Hartono is also said to have given money amounting to IDR 1,170 billion when he served as Head of Customs and Excise Services Section V KPPBC TMP 8 Palembang.

Apart from gifts from businessmen, the Corruption Eradication Commission stated that during his tenure as Head of Makassar Customs and Excise, Andhi was suspected of receiving IDR 7.076 billion in money through a number of accounts. So with the entire amount received, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) accused Andhi of receiving a total of IDR 58.8 billion related to his position at Customs and Excise.

Regarding these charges, Andhi and his attorney filed objections, aka exceptions. The reading of the exception is scheduled to be carried out on Wednesday next week.

Andhi’s alleged corruption began to come to light when the case of ex-tax official Rafael Alun Trisambodo showing off his assets became public. Andhi is one of the Ministry of Finance officials who is in the spotlight because he and his family are suspected of frequently showing off their wealth on social media.

The Corruption Eradication Committee (KPK) then investigated the source of the assets and named Andhi Pramono as a suspect in gratification and money laundering crimes. The Corruption Eradication Committee (KPK) officially raised this case to investigation and detained Andhi on July 7 2023.
