Jakarta: Commission III of the House of Representatives (DPR) will evaluate the performance of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).
"The current leadership will be replaced on December 20. We will ask which cases have been resolved, which have not. We will evaluate them," said Deputy Chairman of Commission III of the DPR Desmond J Mahesa in the Parliament Complex, Central Jakarta on Wednesday, 27 November 2019.
Desmond said the evaluation is related to the agency's leadership transition on December 20, 2019. He explained the evaluation could map out which cases could be stopped or receive a Letter of Investigation Termination (SP3).
"From there we can see what parameters are used by the KPK in issuing SP3 in the future," he said.
One of the unsolved cases is a graft case pertaining to the obligations of the shareholders of Bank Dagang Negara Indonesia’s (BDNI) that received Bank Indonesia liquidity support (BLBI) from the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency. KPK has put two suspects, Sjamsul Nur Salim and Intjih Nur Salim, into its Most Wanted List (DPO).
They allegedly misrepresented Rp4.8 trillion loans for fish farmers as receivables. The misrepresentation is estimated to inflict state losses of Rp4.58 trillion. The Financial Due Diligence (FDD) and Legal Due Diligence (LDD) investigations found that the asset was a non-performing loan and the debt collection rights for the farmers only stood at Rp220 billion.
The alleged crime faced the charge of violating Article 2 (1) or Article 3 of Law No. 31/1999 that has been amended to Law No. 20/2001 on Corruption Crime Eradication juncto Article 55 (1)-1 of the Criminal Code.
