The allegation of corruption involving State-owned insurance company PT Asuransi Jiwasraya (Persero) was first investigated by the Jakarta High Prosecutor Office (Kejati Jakarta) in October 2018. Towards the end of 2019, the investigation was taken over by the Attorney General’s Office (AGO). In less than two months, the AGO had named five suspects in the case, including Benny Tjokrosaputro. Several weeks after that, the AGO announced another suspect, so there are six suspects in total. The prosecutors are so determined that they managed to finish the three suspects’ dockets in March 2020, but the dockets were returned because it was deemed incomplete. After going through so much ordeal, the prosecutors finally managed to finish the dockets of all suspects several weeks ago. The first hearing of the trial finally started on June 3, 2020. This trial is the most anticipated this year. So it is not surprising that the Court was filled with hundreds of visitors despite the COVID-19 outbreak.
