JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) has submitted its audit report on the BLBI (Bank Indonesia liquidity support) to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

KPK ordered the audit over alleged corruption in the issue of a BLBI Clearance Letter (SKL) for Bank Dagang Nasional Indonesia (BDNI). KPK had estimated that the alleged corruption cost the country Rp4.58 trillion.

"Based on the report the government lost Rp4.58 trillion, from the total Rp4.8 trillion that the BLBI debtor had to pay to Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (BPPN)," said Febri Diansyah, Head of Public Relations, KPK, Monday (9/10).

Febri added that the audit report stated that there are indications of collusion in the SKL issue for Bank Dagang Nasional Indonesia as the bank had not paid all its debt.

In the case, KPK had named a suspect, Syafruddin Arsyad Temenggung, who was head of BPPN. (dtc/mfb)
