The Jakarta Corruption Court sentenced former Maritime Security Board (Bakamla) deputy chairman Eko Susilo Hadi on Monday to four years and three months in prison for receiving kickbacks.

The panel of judges also ordered him to pay Rp 200 million (US$15,000) in fines as he has been found guilty of receiving US$88,500, €10,000 and S$100,000 in kickbacks from businessmen as rewards for helping them win a bid to supply satellite monitoring equipment.

When judge Yohannes Priyana asked him whether he would appeal, Eko said, “I accept the verdict.”

Judge Sofialdy pointed out that Eko asked for a kickback involving an order from Bakamla chief Vice Adm. Arie Soedewo in late October last year. Arie had testified as a witness during the trial.

“If we have sufficient preliminary evidence, we can continue the investigation [and name new suspects],” Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Febri Diansyah told The Jakarta Post.

He, however, said that investigations into active military officers are under the authority of the military police.

Indonesian military police commander Maj. Gen. Dodik Wijanarko declined to comment when asked if the force would follow up on the verdict with a new investigation. (kuk/bbs)
