Back in 2019, Karen Agustiawan was accused of corruption related to the purchase of shares of Australia-based ROC Oil Company Limited, decisions she made while serving as president director of PT Pertamina (Persero). She was later released by the Supreme Court in a decision that sparked debate regarding the definition of corruption. This debate is not without reason because in the same case another party was convicted. Even so, the public quickly forgot about this issue until 2022. The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) then announced that they were conducting a new investigation on Pertamina‚Äôs business and had imposed travel bans against several individuals, including Karen. The announcement didn’t get much attention so we almost forgot about it. This year, the KPK finally conducted several witness examinations, the most recent being the examination of Dahlan Iskan, Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) for the 2011-2014 period. We later learned that the KPK has escalated the investigation to the inquisition stage, meaning that there is already a suspect.To subscribe please click here
