Djoko Soegiharto Tjandra, a graft convict and former fugitive in the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case, allegedly planned to bribe officials at the Supreme Court and the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) to help him secure an acquittal in the case.
AGO spokesperson Hari Setiyono said the figure was estimated to be around US$10 million.
“Djoko, along with prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari and NasDem politician Andi Irfan Jaya, agreed to provide $10 million to be handed to some officials at the Supreme Court and the AGO for securing the acquittal,” Hari said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.
