In late November 2016, the South Jakarta District Court decided to partially grant the pre-trial lawsuits filed by the two suspects in the PT Mobile-8 Telecom Tbk (Mobile-8) tax restitution fraud case. The two suspects, i.e., Hary Djaja and Anthony Chandra Kartawiria have since been released from criminal charges. The Court also stated that the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) do not have the authority to investigate cases such as the tax restitution case. The AGO, however, refused to back down. In July 2017, the AGO examined Hary Tanoesoedibjo in relation to the case. Anthony, who’s anxious that the AGO will start a new investigation on the same case, filed for a Judicial Review to the Constitutional Court, stating that a new investigation into cases already stopped by the courts is a legal smuggling. But on October 10, 2017, the Constitutional Court denied the petition.To subscribe please click here
