The KPK is investigating allegations that Lukas Enembe invested money in corruption

Jakarta (Reportase One) – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is investigating allegations of investment using corruption proceeds by the inactive Governor of Papua Lukas Enembe.

These findings were revealed after KPK investigators examined Manulife Indonesia Insurance’s Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Unit (APUPPT) head Tanti Meylani on Monday (20/3).

“The witness was present and explored his knowledge, among other things, related to the suspected cash flow of the suspect LE, which was then invested in several business activities,” said Head of KPK Reporting Section, Ali Fikri, in Jakarta, Tuesday.

However, Ali did not explain further about where Lukas Enembe’s money went because the investigation was still ongoing.

The KPK has currently frozen accounts containing around IDR 81.8 billion and S$31,559 which are allegedly related to the case of the suspect Lukas Enembe. Apart from that, the KPK investigators team also confiscated Rp. 50.7 billion, which was allegedly related to the case.

Ali said that the investigation team had also confiscated 4 cars along with gold bars and several rings with precious stones. However, did not specify the amount.

The confiscation is also in order to maximize the recovery of assets that will later be confiscated for the state.

Ali also revealed that the confiscation was part of the handling of the case in order to prove the elements of the bribery and gratuity article.

Until now, the KPK has only named two suspects in the Lukas Enembe case, namely Lukas Enembe and PT Tabi Bangun Papua (TBP) Director Rijatono Lakka as LE bribes.

The suspect Rijatono Lakka allegedly handed over Rp. 1 billion to Lukas Enembe after being selected to work on three infrastructure projects at the Papua Provincial Government with a multi-year financing scheme, namely the Entrop-Hamadi Road improvement project with a project value of Rp. 14.8 billion, the rehabilitation project for supporting facilities and infrastructure for PAUD Integration with a project value of IDR 13.3 billion, as well as the AURI outdoor shooting arena environmental management project with a project value of IDR 12.9 billion.

Based on a stipulation by the Head of the Corruption Court at the Central Jakarta District Court, the KPK has extended Lukas Enembe’s detention period until April 12, 2023 at the KPK detention center. Extension of the period of detention in the context of collecting evidence to complete the investigation case file.
