Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan today will accept opponents of the Pro-Democracy Activist Network (ProDem). It is known that this afternoon an opponent will visit the Polda Metro Jaya to report Luhut and Erick Thohir regarding the alleged involvement in the PCR business.
Unmitigated, ProDem judged and deserved to fight Luhut and Erick based on the violations they had committed. Both were even reported for alleged criminal violations of Law 28/1999 concerning the Implementation of a Clean and Free State from Corruption, Collusion, and Nepotism.
It is emphasized in the Constitution in Article 5 point 4 that it is stated that every state administrator is obliged not to commit acts of corruption, collusion and nepotism.
“The threat of punishment for perpetrators of collusion and nepotism as regulated in Articles 21 and 22 of Law 28/1999 is quite high, a minimum of 2 years in prison and a maximum of 12 years,” said Chairman of the ProDEM Assembly Iwan Sumule quoting RMol Monday, November 15, 2021.
Iwan explained that the actions carried out by the two ministers were based on evidence that PT GSI got the PCR project whose share ownership was owned by Luhut Pandjaitan and his relationship with Erick Thohir.
Unfortunately, the company was just founded in April 2020 shortly after Indonesia declared itself experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic.
For this reason, ProDEM urges law enforcement to immediately arrest and prosecute Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan according to the allegations. Because allegations of collusion and nepotism are not included in the protection of impunity in the Corona Law.
“Why do we use Law 28/1999? Because Collusion and Nepotism can be punished,” he said.
“For corruption, there must be an element of state loss, while in Article 27 paragraph 1 of Law 2/2020 concerning Corona, the perpetrators of corruption are given immunity from law. There is a sentence, “it is not a loss to the state as long as it is done in good faith”. That’s the reason we don’t use the Corona Law,” he concluded.
The plan is that ProDem will visit Polda Metro Jaya regarding the report that will be carried out at 13.00 WIB.
BPK KPPU hastened to fight Luhut Erick
The provision for immune officials was previously regulated in Perppu No. 1 of 2020 which was later changed to Law No. 2 of 2020 concerning State Financial Policy and Financial System Stability for Handling the Corona Pandemic. By the Constitutional Court, the provision for an official with impunity was annulled.
Executive Director Yudhie Haryono said that with the Constitutional Court’s decision, BPK should have moved quickly on the maladministration audit for the PCR business process, which allegedly involved the two Jokowi ministers.
“In fact, BPK is slow and barren. After the Constitutional Court’s decision, the BPK and the KPPU audit should be able to get the price of PCR, which can reach Rp. 10,000 or up to Rp. 1 million more,” Yudhie told Hops.id, Monday, November 15, 2021.
According to him, the BPK and KPPU institutions should move whether there is a monopoly in the PCR business. In fact, these two institutions did not move even though the Constitutional Court had revoked the provisions on the rule of lawless officials.
“Indications of corruption have been opened by many parties. So Pak Luhut and Pak Erick dare to do business because it is an emergency principle and is protected by the Perppu,” he said.
