JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – KPK summons Sjamsul Nusrsalim and his wife, Itjih Nursalim, to investigate into Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) corruption. KPK has summoned them twice but Sjamsul and his wife were absent.

"Sjamsul Nursalim and Itjih Nursalim are scheduled to be questioned to complete the files of suspect SAT (Syafruddin Arsyad Temenggung/former Chairman of BPPN)," said the spokesperson of KPK, Febri Diansyah, to journalists, Monday (6/11).

Febri added that both of them were summoned to be questioned about clearance letters (SKL) on the Indonesian National Trade Bank (BDNI). Sjamsul is said to be a substantial shareholder of BDNI. He has an obligation to the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (BPPN).

Both of them are still in Singapore. On the other hand, KPK stated they will keep trying to deliver the investigation letter to cooperate with the local authority.

Besides them, KPK also summons the Director of PT Gajah Tunggal, Jusup Agus Sayono. He will be questioned for suspect Syafruddin.

Jusup was a director in 2016. Now, Jusup is the commissioner of PT Polychem Indonesia Tbk since 2016 and the Director of PT Inoac Polytechno Indonesia since 2014.

KPK said that Syafruddin recommended approving the revised Financial System Stability Committee (KKSK) on litigation against liable parties obligation to become the restructuring of assets transfer obligation by BLBI liable parties to BPPN for Rp4.8 trillion.

In the latest audit of the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK), KPK mentions that the state losses in the case have reached Rp4.58 trillion as the Rp1.1 trillion that was considered sustainable got auctioned and only Rp220 billion was obtained. The remaining Rp4.58 trillion becomes the state losses. (dtc/rm)
