PASUNDAN POST ■ The special criminal investigator of the Attorney General's Office, continues to develop an investigation into the alleged corruption case of PT Asuransi Jiwasraya (Persero).
After arresting five suspects, investigators conducted a search and seized a number of items, including four-wheeled and two-wheeled vehicles belonging to the former Director of PT Asuransi Jiwasraya, Hendrisman Rahim and former Jiwasraya Finance Director, Hary Prasetyo.
Criminal Law Expert Suparji Ahmad calls for strict investigators to carry out law enforcement efforts. This means that all suspects' homes must be searched. Including a number of assets were also confiscated as an anticipatory step in the return of state finances.
He explained, the search and seizure was part of the collection of evidence for further legal proceedings. In order to obtain convincing evidence, confiscation is necessary to make it relevant to the case being handled.
"Delayed confiscation will lead to the disappearance of evidence," Suparji told reporters today.
In addition, he also asked the Attorney General's Office to be transparent regarding any confiscated items. "So there is clarity in the legal process," he added.
With the search and seizure of assets belonging to the suspect, there will be an increase in the number of suspects. The investigation team is still continuing to develop this case.
"There might be a new suspect. Because this is a big case and lasts a long time. So it is suspected to involve many people, "he concluded.
Meanwhile, the Head of the Attorney General's Legal Information Center, Hary Setiyono, said that the investigation of a number of parties suspected of knowing this problem was ongoing.
Investigators, said Hary, scheduled seven witnesses to be examined. But only four witnesses were present. Namely Guntur Surya Saputra as Director of PT Pinnecle Investment, Director of PT Treasure Fund Investama, Dwinanto Amboro as, Head of Finance Division of the Investment Division of PT Jiwasraya (Persero) Chandra Triana and Dicky Kurniawan as Heads of Accounting and Finance Division of PT Jiwasraya (Persero).
While absent were PT Millenium Capital Management Director Fahyudi Djaniatmadja, PT Jasa Capital Asset Management Director Rudolfus Pribadi Agung Sujagad and Adi Pratomo Aryanto as Head of the Transaction section in the Finance Section of the Investment Division of PT Jiwasraya (Persero).
"Of the seven witnesses, four were present undergoing the examination," Hary explained at the Attorney General's Office, Jakarta, on Thursday (16/1).
According to him, the search and seizure of assets belonging to the suspects is still being carried out by the investigation team.
