Graft convict Andi Agustinus has paid off the remaining US$2.15 million to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) that he was ordered to reimburse as part of his sentence after being found guilty of playing a major role in the e-ID embezzlement case.
"[Andi's] wife deposited the money to the KPK's account through BRI," KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said on Wednesday, referring to state-owned Bank Rakyat Indonesia.
In addition to a 13-year prison sentence, the Supreme Court ordered Andi to pay a Rp 1 billion (US$65,729) fine as well as reimbursing the state $2.5 million and Rp 1.29 billion.
"[Andi] previously returned US$350,000, paid the Rp 1 billion fine, and paid part of the Rp 1.29 billion in compensation money. So in total, the KPK through its Evidence and Execution Unit has recovered Rp 2.29 billion and US$2.5 million in money owed to the state from Andi Agustinus in the e-ID case," Febri said.
The e-ID graft case was estimated to have caused Rp 2.3 trillion in state losses. Four people have been convicted in relation to the case, including Andi and former House of Representatives speaker Setya Novanto. Setya was ordered by the court to reimburse the state $7.3 million and has so far repaid Rp 5 billion and US$100,000.(kmt/evi)
