The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) indicted former national traffic police commander Insp. Gen. Djoko Susilo with multiple charges of graft and money laundering under the corruption and money laundering laws.
The prosecutors stated that they had sufficient evidence to prove Djoko's role in the driving simulator procurement graft case that caused Rp 144.9 billion (U$14 million) of state losses.
'In December 2010, Djoko summoned his subordinate, Adj. Sr. Comr. Teddy Rusmawan to his office and told Teddy he wanted Budi Susanto involved in the driving simulator project,' Prosecutor Roni said on Tuesday during Djoko's first hearing session.
Budi Susanto, through his company PT CMMA, later won the tender to work on the Rp 198 billion project.
The prosecutors also alleged that Djoko, with no additional income to his Rp 28 million monthly salary, had a fortune larger than his financial profile as a two-star general.
Roni said prosecutors also had strong evidence that Djoko had managed to gain Rp 32 billion (U$ 3.3 million) from bribes and money laundering activities.
Djoko's court was highly anticipated by the public since he was the highest rank police official whose graft case tackled by KPK.
The court session was adjourned until next week with the agenda of hearing the defense statements. (nai/dic)
