Jakarta, Timerilis.com – LA, a 26-year-old woman, has made a startling allegation. She accuses a Bali Regional Police officer of attempting to extort her. She claims he demanded a 10 percent cut from her IDR 18.4 billion project

The Case Unfolds LA, currently embroiled in an illegal mining case, serves as the Director of PT Sancaka Mitra Jaya. This stone mining company operates in Banjar Yeh Anakan, Banjar Asem Village, Seririt District, Buleleng Regency, Bali.

Allegation Details Her lawyer, Wayan Sudarma, took action and reported the alleged extortion to the National Police Headquarters’ Professional and Security Division (Div Propam). They have a recording of a conversation between LA and the Police Commissioner, lasting over 13 minutes, as evidence.

Investigation Steps The Bali Regional Police’s Directorate of Special Criminal Investigation (Ditreskrimsus) began scrutinizing her business permits, active since 2021. On October 24, 2023, they visited her, and two days later, she attended a summons for questioning. The inquiry focused on the misuse of subsidized fuel and unauthorized mining activities.

In a meeting with a police officer, LA faced a subtle demand for a 10 percent share of her project, totaling IDR 1.8 billion. Sudarma highlighted the indirect nature of this request.

Consequences and Current Status After LA refused the demand, the police named her a suspect, as stated in the suspect designation letter dated November 16, 2023. Subsequently, she suffered a motorcycle accident on November 19, 2023, due to the stress. Currently, she is under medical care at RSUP Prof Ngoerah (Sanglah) Denpasar.

This incident raises serious concerns about the integrity of law enforcement in Bali. The investigation into these claims is ongoing.
