JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The cessie (receivables sales facility agreement) scandal involving the Indonesian Bank Security Agency (BPPN) and PT Victoria Securities International Corporation (VSIC) has gotten more interesting. A third party has openly requested to intervene in the pretrial.
The third party in question is President Director of PT Adyaesta, Johnny Widjaja, the man who reported the alleged corruption in the first place. Johnny filed for an intervention for the pretrial through his lawyers Johnson Panjaitan and Luciana Lovind.
The move from PT Adyaesta is rare, but it shows that the case is by no means a small one.
Meanwhile, Victoria Securities International suspects hidden motives and interests behind Adyaesta Ciptatama's maneuver. However, the company is unwilling to detail further about its suspicions.
"What's for sure is that they suddenly wanted to intervene (in the pretrial). We don't exactly know what their intentions are," said Peter Kurniawan, a lawyer of Victoria Securities International, at the District Court of South Jakarta, Wednesday (23/9).
However, the company is thankful that the request have been turned down by the judges, who explained that Adyaesta is already being represented by the Attorney General's Office.
"The judges made the right decision by turning down the intervention request by PT Adyaesta," Peter said.
Johnson explained that the company wanted to intervene as the search and compensation by the Attorney General's Office was precise. (dtc)
