In March 2021, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigated the allegations of corruption in the arrangement of excisable goods managed by the Concession Agency (BP) in the Bintan Free Trade and Free Port Zone (FTZ) (BP Bintan). The KPK said that the BP Bintan case was already in the inquisition stage, so there should already be a suspect.

It took the KPK four more months to finally arrest and announce the suspects, one of whom is the Regent of Bintan Apri Sujadi (Democratic Party).
