More Problems for WanaArtha Life

Over two years ago, in light of the corruption scandal in PT Asuransi Jiwasraya, the public learned about a different problem in PT Asuransi Jiwa Adisarana Wanaartha, also known as WanaArtha Life. Initially, the company objected to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) decision which seized their assets in the case. As a result, the company cannot fulfill its obligations to its clients. However, the case would actually be the beginning of revelation of other crimes committed by WanaArtha officials. In addition to a criminal investigation initiated by the police, the company operating license has finally been annulled by the Financial Service Authority (OJK) in December 2023. Soon after, a liquidation team was formed, however, without much communication with the policyholders causing another confusion. Towards the end of last week, a lawsuit on Suspension of Debts Payment (PKPU) was finally submitted against the company.

Corruption Journal : Chasing Fugitives

For over four years the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has faced public scrutiny due to the escape of many suspects in cases of alleged corruption. What made the situation look bad was that the suspects in question were not ordinary people, that said the KPK’s commitment was questioned. Recently, the KPK announced the arrest of one of the fugitives, Izil Azhar, who is a suspect in the case of corruption in Aceh. Separately, the KPK announced a different news, stating that all these years while we’re waiting for the KPK to arrest Paulus Tannos, the key actor of the E-KTP graft case, the application for issuance of Red Notice against Paulus was apparently never processed. What a news.

Law Enforcement Regional Coordination and Anti-Criminalization Efforts

The Minister of Home Affairs, Tito Karnavian, who is former national police chief, delivered remarks at a coordination meeting of Regional Inspectors across Indonesia at the Borobudur Hotel on Jan. 25, 2023. But a fragment of his speech caught attention for the wrong reasons. Minister Tito reportedly asked Law Enforcement Officials (APH) not to investigate regional officials because it would disrupt development in the region. But this statement was reported out of context. It is interesting to know that almost all major national media outlets quoted the same sentence without including other parts of the remarks, even though the essence of Minister Tito’s presentation was also conveyed by the Attorney General, ST Burhanuddin, and the Chief of Police’s Criminal Investigative Unit (Kabareskrim) who were also present. This unequal reporting reminds us of Government decisions made in mid-2016.

Messy Meikarta

PT Mahkota Sentosa Utama (PT MSU), subsidiary of PT Lippo Cikarang Tbk (LPCK) and developer of the Meikarta township project, surprised the public this week after we learned that the company is suing 18 of its buyers. The buyers, as we previously reported, have protested to various parties since the end of last year, asking for compensation because they have not been able to occupy the apartment units they have paid for, even though it has been two years past the completion target. PT MSU considers this action as provocation and defames the company which must be paid compensation.

On the Aksi Cepat Tanggap Scandal : Decisions

Trial of three defendants in the case of alleged crimes committed by the officials of Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) is over.
