The Indonesian military police has named an ex-Air Force chief of staff planning assistant as a suspect in a bribery case related to the procurement of Agusta Westland VIP chopper.
“We have named former Air Force chief of staff planning assistant, identified only as SB, a new suspect on the case,” military police commander Maj. Gen. Dodik Wijanarko was quoted as saying by Kompas.com last Saturday.
SB is held responsible for ordering his subordinates to continue with the procurement despite President Joko Widodo’s instruction to cancel the deal. The suspect could be charged with misuse of authority and embezzlement, Dodik claimed.
This the fourth suspect to be named by military police after three AF personnel were named in May, including deputy governor of the Air Force Academy and Air Force commander of operations.
The embezzlement reportedly caused Rp 224 billion (US$ 16 million) in state losses.
