Firli Bahuri Asks for the Case to be Stopped, Polda Metro is Firm in Continuing the Process Until it is Completed

progresifjaya.id, JAKARTA – Whether it was a form of psywar or because he had lost his nerve, former Corruption Eradication Commission Chairman Firli Bahuri asked Polda Metro Jaya to stop the case. He considers that the Syahrul Yasin Limpo (SYL) extortion case is progressing slowly and there is no clarity.

Responding to this request, Dirreskrimsus Polda Metro Jaya, Kombes Pol Ade Safri Simanjuntak just smiled faintly. He emphasized that he would not comply with this request and would continue to process the case until it was completed.

“We are professional. This means it is procedural and thorough,” he emphasized, Monday, (1/7).

He said, that the investigation into the Firli Bahuri case was proceeding according to the rules. He even said that investigators already had 4 pieces of evidence to name Firli Bahuri as a suspect.

“Investigations in the handling of the a quo case have been carried out professionally, transparently and accountably. Investigators in the handling of the a quo case even have 4 pieces of evidence,” he said again.

As is known, Firli Bahuri was named a suspect in alleged extortion against SYL since November 2023. He was charged with alleged criminal acts to eradicate corruption in the form of extortion or bribery related to the handling of legal issues at the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture for the 2020-2023 period.

Polda Metro Jaya hasn’t arrested Firli until now and is still developing the alleged corruption case into other alleged criminal acts.

At different times, Firli Bahuri’s attorney, Ian Iskandar, is known to have made a request to Polda Metro Jaya investigators to stop the alleged extortion case which made his client a suspect.

He said, that the process of case files going back and forth from the police to the prosecutor’s office indicated that there was not enough evidence regarding this alleged case.

“We hope that with the back and forth of case files that have been going on for 8 months, it would be good and wise if the Dirreskrimsus professionally issued an SP3 (an order to stop the investigation). There is a legal basis for that, namely Article 109 paragraph 2 of the Criminal Procedure Code,” said Ian Iskandar yesterday.

“The article clearly states that investigators are obliged to issue an SP3 in a case because the evidence for the alleged allegations is not met,” he added. (Bembo)
