According to her lawyer, Jack Lapian, Titi only received Rp5billion. During the process, Titi claimed that her the certificate was changed to Andrew’s name without her consent. It is suspected that Andrew used the certificate at UOB Bank.

Titi is set to attend a questioning session at the police station this week. “The certificate is a product of a crime committed by the suspects that have been processed by the police previously,” Lapian added.
