On Feb. 1, 2019, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) named Samin Tan, owner of PT Borneo Lumbung Energi & Metal Tbk (formerly BORN), a suspect of bribery. Samin was investigated after the KPK looked into the allegations of corruption related to the construction of the Riau Power Plant; a case that ensnared conglomerate Johannes Kotjo and former Minister of Social Affairs Idrus Marham (Golkar). Samin came up with reasons to avoid the legal process. When the KPK decided to arrest him, Samin could no longer be found. The KPK put his name on the wanted list in April 2020. By April 5, 2021, the KPK finally succeeded in arresting Samin Tan.
