Five years ago, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) uncovered a bribery scheme that led to a bigger case of corruption implicating Lippo Group. The KPK later attempted to snare Eddy Sindoro, a Lippo Group loyalist, to no avail. He left the country even before the KPK named him a suspect. In 2018, Eddy turned himself in. The public learned that he had escaped with the help of several people, including the notorious advocate Lucas, who was named a suspect for obstruction of justice soon after. Eddy and Lucas were both found guilty of different charges, but Lucas insisted on innocence. He managed to get an advantage in every legal remedy he took. Eventually, the Supreme Court accepted his reconsideration (PK) plea and acquitted him of all charges.
