JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS - The extradition of the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) case fugitive Samadikun Hartono from China is predicted to be complicated. It is said that the government of China won't hand the fugitive that has been escaping for 13 years to Indonesian government easily. China is said to give some requirements to the government of Indonesia if they want Samadikun to be handed. The requirement that would be asked by the government of China is to hand the terrorism convict from the Chinese Uighur Tribe.

Although the government of Indonesia didn't claim openly to the public about the fugitive barter process, the Legal and Human Rights Minister Yasonna Laoly mentioned that the Chinese government gave some requirements to them if they want to extradite fugitive Samadikun. However, he refused to mention the requirement asked by the Chinese government to the government of Indonesia.

Yasonna only asked the reporters to ask the issue to Attorney General Mohammad Prasetyo. However, Prasetyo stated that there is no fugitive barter from Indonesia in the extradition of Samadikun. According to Prasetyo, the extradition of Samadikun is still in process. He only asserted that the extradition of Samadikun won't be easy.

Despite this, the indication of the barter is obvious. Since the people of Uighur Chinese tribe got arrested, the government of China asked the Indonesian government to hand them. However, the government of Indonesia stated that they will hand the people of Uighur after the Indonesian law enforcers have brought them to justice.

The Indonesian police arrested four people of Uighur tribe who tried to join Santoso's terrorist network on September 2014. They were captured at Moutong Parigi Regency, Central Sulawesi.

One year after their arrest, the North Jakarta State Court has sentenced them guilty for attempting terrorism by joining Eastern Indonesia Mujahidin Organization in Poso.

Prasetyo claimed that they still can't make sure about the extradition of Samadikun. The corruptors search team assisted by the Foreign Affairs Ministry are keeping their communication with the Chinese government.
