The wife of an attorney in Bekasi, West Java, has failed to show up for questioning after police summoned her for an investigation of possible bank fraud. She had been reported to the Bekasi Police on Aug. 29 by her own husband, 46-year-old Novy Hariadi, who accused her of breaching his personal bank account.
“I hope she can be summoned again for the investigation,” Hariadi said on Monday, tempo.co reported, with reference to his wife. The couple have split up but are not divorced.
He said he had found out about the breach by accident, when he came across a money transfer document on his laptop at his house in Mustikajaya on July 2018. He also found a photo of his wife, identified only as NR, holding the receipt of the money transfer.
He then went to the bank’s branch office at the Kemang Pratama housing complex in Rawalumbu, claiming he had lost millions of rupiah.
He said the bank should have been more cautious, because the letter of authority to transfer the money that his wife used had been forged.
Bekasi Police special crimes investigation head Adj. Comr. Untung Riswaji said the investigation of the case was ongoing but refused to reveal more details, as it involved banking confidentiality.
“There is a specific investigation for this in accordance with the law,” Untung said. (ami)
