Indonesia: Police generals admit to accepting bribes from Djoko Tjandra

Two police generals have admitted to accepting bribes in exchange for helping graft convict and ex-fugitive Djoko Soegiarto Tjandra evade capture.

National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Awi Setiyono said Insp. Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte and Brig. Gen. Prasetyo Utomo had confessed to removing Djoko’s red notice status, allowing to freely enter the country and travel within it despite being on law enforcement’s most-wanted list for more than a decade.

“We have interrogated the suspects. They admitted taking the money,” Awi said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com. However, he declined to reveal the exact amount they accepted in kickbacks.
