Former minister reported for more than corruption

Former minister reported for more than corruption
Denny Indrayana

The National Police's detective division chief, Comr. Gen. Budi Waseso, said on Wednesday that only three out of six cases reported against former Law and Human Rights deputy minister Denny Indrayana involved alleged graft.

"The rest are general crimes," he said, declining to describe them further.

Earlier this year, Denny was named a graft suspect in a case involving the ministry's online passport payment system, also known as the Payment Gateway, which was cancelled after running for only four months last year.

Denny stands accused of abusing his power by directly appointing two online service providers, PT Nusa Satu Inti Artha and PT Finnet Indonesia, to run the payment system.

The project allegedly caused state losses of Rp 32 billion (S$3.3 million).

Although six cases were reported against Denny, Budi said, the former deputy minister was still only a suspect in the Payment Gateway case.

"We are focusing on this case first before we move on to the others. There's no rush," he said.
