Indonesia: High-ranking sports ministry official indicted for accepting bribes

-

Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) prosecutors have indicted a high-ranking official of the Youth and Sport Ministry, accusing him of receiving Rp 400 million (US$28,170) in bribes. The ministry’s deputy IV in charge of sport achievement improvement, Mulyana, was charged with violating Article 12 and Article 11 of the Corruption Law in conjunction with Article 64 of the Criminal Code. He was also accused of receiving a Toyota Fortuner car and one Samsung cellphone.

“The defendant has received a present or promise in the form of money,” KPK prosecutor Ronald F. Worotikan read from a charge sheet during a court hearing on Monday as quoted by Kompas.com.

According to the prosecutor, the bribe was given by the secretary-general of the National Sports Committee (KONI), Ending Fuad Hamidy, and its treasurer Johny E. Awuy. The two have also been named suspects.

Mulyana and his two subordinates, Adhi Purnomo and Eko Triyanto, allegedly received bribes to help accelerate the approval and disbursement of the ministry’s grant to KONI from the 2018 state budget.

KONI proposed the grant to the ministry regarding its supervisory duties during the 2018 Asian Games and the 2018 Asian Para Games.

Another recent court hearing revealed that Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Imam Nahrawi was also being accused of accepting bribes in the same case. He was said to be on the list of alleged recipients of bribes from KONI.

Mulyana is also on the list along with other ministry and committee officials who allegedly received kickbacks totaling Rp 3.4 billion (US$240,831) to provide a state grant to the committee, as reported by Antara. (foy)
