Indonesia: Prosecutors demand seven years’ imprisonment for inactive Medan mayor in bribery case

Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) prosecutors have demanded seven years’ imprisonment and a Rp 500 million (US$33,564) fine for Tengku Dzulmi Eldin, the inactive mayor of Medan in North Sumatra, for his alleged involvement in a bribery case related to projects and positions in the city administration.

Dzulmi allegedly received a total of Rp 2.1 billion in bribes from a number of Medan city officials, including those in high-ranking positions, from 2018 to 2019, said KPK prosecutors Siswhandhono, Arin Karniasari and Yoyok Fiter Haitifewu.

The antigraft body has charged Dzulmi under Article 12 of the 2001 Corruption Law, which prohibits civil servants and public administration officials from accepting bribes.
