Thirteen companies, OJK official named suspects in Jiwasraya case

first_imgThe 2001 law on corruption crimes allows Indonesian legal authorities to name companies suspects.However, the AGO has yet to name any executives of the companies suspects as the investigation is ongoing.The AGO is also looking into possible reasons as to why Jiwasraya decided to entrust the companies with managing its funds.“We accuse all suspects of violating laws for their personal interests, as stipulated in Article 2 of the 1999 Corruption Crime Law,” Hari said. “We also allege that the companies committed money laundering.”Prior to the announcement, the AGO had named six suspects in the case including three former Jiwasraya executives, namely former president director Hendrisman Rahim, former finance director Hary Prasetyo and former finance and investment division head Syahmirwan.The office also named three other suspects: publicly listed property firm PT Hanson International president director Benny Tjokrosaputro, publicly listed mining company PT Trada Alam Minera president commissioner Heru Hidayat and PT Maxima Integra director Joko Hartono Tirto.The suspects are now defendants, having undergone their first hearing on June 4.The naming of new suspects follows the AGO’s move this month to track down the flow of investment by Jiwasraya. The office has questioned almost 30 witnesses, ranging from asset management executives and OJK officials to former Indonesia Stock Exchange executives, from June 2 to June 23.The questioning is part of the AGO’s investigation of the case after issuing a letter ordering the start of the investigation on Dec. 27, two months after former State-Owned Enterprise Minister Rini Soemarno filed a report regarding alleged fraud at the state-run insurer with the AGO in October.Indonesian Anticorruption Community Coordinator (MAKI) Boyamin Saiman said he had already suggested that the AGO focus its investigation on OJK officials’ roles in the case through several formal meetings, as he accused the agency of being negligent in allowing Jiwasraya to promote the JS Saving Plan to the public.Boyamin, who also reported alleged fraud in Jiwasraya to the AGO in Jakarta in 2018, said the public should appreciate any progress made by the AGO regarding the case.However, Trisakti University criminal law expert Abdul Fickar Hadjar said it was too early for him to gauge the office’s success in probing the case, adding that the public should see how much of the alleged state losses from the case could be recovered by the AGO.He went on to say that the prosecutors had also yet to announce the charges that would be brought against the defendants on trial, making it hard for him to assess the AGO’s seriousness in settling the case.“The state pays AGO officers to conduct investigations and name suspects, so there is nothing special about the AGO’s performance in resolving the Jiwasraya case – for now,” Abdul said.The following is a list of the 13 companies that were named suspects:1. PT Dhanawibawa Manajemen Investasi/Pan Arcadia Capital2. PT OSO Manajemen Investasi3. PT Pinacle Persada Investasi4. PT Milenium Danatama5. PT Prospera Aset Manajemen6. PT MNC Aset Manajemen7. PT. Maybank Aset Manajemen8. PT GAP Capital9. PT Jasa Capital Aset Manajemen10. PT Pool Advista Asset Management11. PT Corfina Capital12. PT Treasure Fund Investama Indonesia13. PT Sinarmas Aset ManajemenTopics : The department head of capital market monitoring at the OJK from 2014 to 2017 was Fakhri Hilmi.“Despite being a suspect in the case, we haven’t arrested the OJK official as of now,” Hari said during a press conference on Thursday.Hari also announced that 13 asset management companies were named suspects in the case. The AGO accused the companies of mismanaging or laundering the premium revenue collected by Jiwasraya from 2014 to 2018.The companies allegedly caused state losses amounting to Rp 12.35 trillion, 73.46 percent of the total Rp 16.81 trillion in state losses incurred by Jiwasraya’s investment mismanagement as audited by the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) from 2008 to 2018. After around six months of investigation, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has named 13 asset management companies and a Financial Services Authority (OJK) official suspects in a case of alleged corruption and money laundering surrounding state-owned insurer PT Asuransi Jiwasraya.Jiwasraya is accused of mismanagement when it invested its premium revenue from the JS Saving Plan, one of the company’s insurance products, in multiple assets. As a result, it failed to pay out Rp 16 trillion (US$1.1 billion) in matured policies due in February to its policyholders.AGO spokesman Hari Setiyono said that the OJK deputy commissioner for capital market monitoring, identified only as FH, was a new suspect in the case. The office accused him of abuse of power, which allegedly paved the way for Jiwasraya’s investment mismanagement during FH’s tenure as OJK department head of capital market monitoring from 2014 to 2017.last_img read more
