Jakarta, 10 April 2021-- The Corruption Eradication Commission of the Republic of Indonesia would like to express our apology for the inconvenience brought by a statement made by our Deputy of Law Enforcement and Asset Recovery. We wish to emphasize that the aforementioned statement is not intended to disparage any system or laws prevailing in the country of Singapore.
The KPK and the CPIB (Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau) have long collaborated closely in anti-corruption efforts in accordance with each agency's capacities and duties, including in the areas of prevention, education, and law enforcement.
The CPIB has frequently cooperated with the KPK in the investigation of corruption cases. Among those were fulfilment of requests to the Singapore government using the Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) mechanism through the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Justice in its role as centrail authority, such as in the Innospec, Garuda Indonesia and electronic identification card cases.
In those cases, the KPK has received assistance in the form of witness interview facilitation, information exchange, and asset tracing.
Pertaining specifically to the BLBI case, the CPIB had also rendered assistance in the summoning of suspects. In the near future, the KPK will seek the CPIB's help in the delivery of warrant of investigation termination to persons SN and ISN, who are believed to be located in Singapore.
The KPK is grateful to the CPIB for all the cooperation and valuable assistance provided throughout the years. We hope and trust that the KPK and the CPIB will continue to maintain friendly relations and communications, in the mutual commitment to cooperate in fighting corrupt practices.
As methods used by criminals to commit corruption and evade law enforcement grow more advanced and go beyond national borders, we believe it is of utmost importance that states engage in dialogues to expand forms of cooperation to improve the effectiveness and tackle the hurdles in the law enforcement process.
