Two months ago, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) finally decided to detain Richard Joost (RJ) Lino. The former CEO of State-owned port management company PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero) (Pelindo II) was named suspect in 2015 for his involvement in the allegedly corrupt procurement of three Quay Container Crane (QCC) over a decade ago. When the KPK detained him, Lino expressed relief, but that emotion may have changed. Lino filed a pre-trial lawsuit against the KPK’s decisions, including the decision to detain him. The first hearing of the case started this week.
