Indonesia:Five years’ imprisonment sought for former Perum Perindo boss in fish import bribery case

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has demanded five years’ imprisonment and a Rp 500 million (US$34,003) fine for Risyanto Suanda, the former president director of the state-owned Indonesia Fisheries Company (Perum Perindo), for his alleged role in a bribery case related to a fish import permit.

The prosecutors accused Risyanto of accepting a $30,000 bribe from Mujib Mustofa, the president director PT Navy Arsa Sejahtera, in exchange for the latter’s use of Perum Perindo’s permit to import up to 150 tons of frozen pacific mackerel in 2019.

Navy Arsa Sejahtera was prohibited from importing fish in 2009 for exceeding its import quota.
