Police may summon Djarot over suspected corruption in islets' tax value
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta Police may summon former Jakarta governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat in regard to alleged corruption over the taxable value of property (NJOP) of the reclaimed islets in Jakarta Bay.
On Wednesday, the police are scheduled to question several city officials over the allegations and would continue summoning officials related to the determination of the NJOP on Thursday.
On Thursday, they will query Jakarta Tax Agency head Edi Sumantri and Tax Appraiser Office head Dwi Haryantono.
The police’s special crimes unit director Sr. Comr. Adi Deriyan said there was a possibility that the police would also question Djarot, given that the NJOP was officially set through a decree he signed on Aug. 23.
“We’ll see in the investigation later whether Djarot should be summoned or not,” Adi said as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com on Wednesday. “There is a wide possibility that we will question all people related to the issue.”
The Jakarta administration earlier this year set the NJOP of reclamation islets C and D at Rp 3.1 million [US$229.3] per square meter. However, if it was set in line with the NJOP of its surrounding areas, the islets’ tax value could be between Rp 25 million and Rp 30 million per square meter. (agn)
