KPK Charges Former Tax Official Rafael Alun Trisambodo with Money Laundering

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has once again named former Directorate General of Taxation (DJP) official Rafael Alun Trisambodo (RAT) a suspect. This time, the KPK has charged Mario Dandy Satriyo's father with Money Laundering (TPPU).

KPK spokesman Ali Fikri explained that the decision to charge Rafael with money laundering was based on the development of the gratuity case that previously implicated him. There is strong suspicion that Rafael owns assets that are linked to the alleged TPPU, including placing, transferring, spending, hiding, and disguising the origin of his wealth, which is suspected of being derived from corruption.

"On this basis, it is true that the KPK has now named RAT as a suspect in the alleged TPPU case," Ali said on Wednesday (10/5/2023).

Ali said that evidence collection to support the TPPU charges against Rafael had been conducted. This includes tracing various assets involving the active role of the Asset Tracing Unit in the KPK's Directorate of Evidence and Execution Management.

"The application of TPPU is in line with the KPK's commitment to maximize asset seizure and recovery as a result of corruption," Ali explained.

It is known that the KPK had previously named Rafael Alun Trisambodo as a suspect in the gratuity case related to tax audits. The former Head of the General Affairs Section of the South Jakarta II Directorate of Taxation is suspected of receiving gratuities worth 90,000 US dollars or around Rp1.34 billion. Rafael is alleged to have received the money through his company, PT Artha Mega Ekadhana (AME), which provides consulting services related to bookkeeping and taxation.

This latest development adds to the growing list of high-profile cases of corruption in Indonesia. The KPK's efforts to investigate and prosecute corrupt officials demonstrate the government's commitment to eradicating corruption, which has long been a major obstacle to Indonesia's economic and social development. It remains to be seen how this case will unfold and whether it will lead to more significant actions against corrupt officials in the country.
