In another blow to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the National Police announced Tuesday they had dropped their investigation into an allegation that deputy police chief Comr. Gen. Budi Gunawan had numerous bank accounts full of billions of rupiah in bribes.
The director of economic and special crimes at the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim), Sr. Comr. Victor Edi Simanjuntak, who is in charge of the investigation, said the decision to drop the probe was made in April in a joint case review, involving police investigators handling the case and other legal experts.
The consensus at the meeting was that Bareskrim should not follow up on the KPK’s dossiers on Budi due to a lack of evidence.
