JAKARTA - Coordinator of the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Society (MAKI) Boyamin Saiman asked former officials of the Directorate General of Taxes at the Ministry of Finance (Kemenkeu) Rafael Alun to be arrested immediately. Do not let the alleged gratification suspect run away and not be held accountable for his actions.

"MAKI asked the KPK to immediately detain Rafael. Don't use it for a long time and run away," Boyamin said in his statement, Saturday, April 1.

Boyamin assessed that there was no reason for the anti-corruption commission to postpone the forced attempt. Moreover, MAKI is also worried that Rafael could influence other witnesses in his case because he can still travel except abroad.

"That's something possible because (Rafael Alun, ed) has a broad network," he said.

Previously reported, the KPK named Rafael Alun a suspect. He is suspected of receiving gratuities of up to tens of billions from 2011-2023 related to tax audits.

This determination was made by the anti-corruption commission after they investigated Rafael Alun's jumbo assets which were exposed after his son, Mario Dandy, abused a 17-year-old student, David. It is suspected that there was a game behind the ownership of a wealth of Rp56 billion.

In this effort, investigators have asked for information from the Head of the East Jakarta Intermediate Tax Service Office (KPP) Wahono Saputro. This summons was made because his wife allegedly owns shares in the company owned by Rafael's wife, Erni Torondek.

In addition, investigators are also investigating the findings of Rafael's safe deposit box in which there are billions of money. The findings that have been blocked by the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) are suspected to have come from accepting bribes.
