KPK Found This During Office Search of Acting Director General of Mineral and Coal at Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM)

Jakarta, Timerilis.com – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) searched the office of the Acting Director General of Mineral and Coal (Dirjen) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) regarding an alleged corruption case of cutting ASN Performance Allowance (Tukin).

The search was carried out by the KPK on Monday (27/3/2023). During the search, an apartment key was found and the team rushed to inspect the apartment which is located at Pakubuwono Menteng, Central Jakarta.

“In there, we found some money, not tens of billions, around IDR 1.3B. Because it was only counted in the morning,” KPK Investigation Director Asep Guntur told reporters at the KPK’s Red and White Building, Wednesday (3/29/2023).

From the findings of the money, the KPK conducted an in-depth investigation into the alleged corruption of cutting Tukin ASN at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

“The key is in Mr. Plh but we don’t know who owns it, it could just be a ride,” said Asep.

Furthermore, the KPK explained that the alleged case was carried out by finance people at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

“So, there is excess money then they try to figure out how to share it. If we have a salary, there is a basic salary, tukin, etc., now the brand is divided into tukin. Like a typo, tukin IDR 5M, given one zero to IDR 50M, like a typo. So, it’s obvious this is a typo,” he explained.

The KPK has sent a summons to the Acting Director General of Mineral and Coal to come this week to the KPK Red and White Building for examination.

“We have called him, maybe at the end of this week, just wait. At the end of the week, there are only two days left, if not Thursday, then Friday, we are just waiting to come or not. Anyway, we have been summoned,” he said.

Until now, the KPK has not debarred the suspects from leaving the country, the KPK considers the ten suspects to be good citizens because they are cooperative.

“We also believe that so far they are good citizens because they are cooperative. If I’m not mistaken, the last ten were,” he explained.

In this case, the KPK is using the ‘Follow The Money’ method by tracing the flow of money from the alleged corruption.

“The documents (secured). Our method is Follow The Money, we trace where the money goes,” he said.

So far, the KPK has secured several documents regarding salary slips and others as evidence. (Eva/Rd)
