The National Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim) has officially re-submitted its case dossier on the distribution of fake vaccines to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO). Two earlier dossiers were rejected due to incomplete documentation.

"The case dossier is with the AGO. The AGO is giving special attention to the case," Bareskrim director of special economic crimes Brig. Gen. Agung Setya said in Jakarta as quoted by Antara news agency on Tuesday.

Agung said the police continued to coordinate with the AGO on the case.

"Coordination is ongoing," he said.

In the investigative process, investigators divided the case into four separate files based on the networks producing fake vaccines. Altogether, 25 people have been named suspects.

Each suspect has been categorized further according to his or her role in the production chain. The suspects consist of six producers, nine distributors, two bottle collectors, one label-maker, two nurses and five doctors.

The suspects could face charges of violating the Health Law, the Consumer Protection Law and the Money Laundering Law, and could be sentenced to over 10 years in prison. (liz/ags)
