Indonesia: AGO arrests prosecutor Pinangki for alleged corruption in connection with Djoko Tjandra

The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has arrested prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari for allegedly accepting bribes in connection with graft convict Djoko Tjandra, who was arrested late last month after being on the run for years.

Investigators at the AGO’s junior attorney for special crimes (Jampidsus) made the arrest on Tuesday night after naming Pinangki a suspect in a bribery case. AGO spokesman Hari Setiyono said that Pinangki had allegedly accepted about US$500,000 in bribes, but did not specify who she got it from.

The AGO’s supervisory unit previously said that Pinangki had committed an ethics violation by going on nine international trips to Singapore and Malaysia in 2019 without permission, allegedly to meet with Djoko, who was still at large at the time.
