Gayus made the confession to reporters after the court trial session. He said that he went to Bali on 4 November stayed at the Westin Hotel and watched international tennis tournament on 5th and 6th. The Police took him back to detention on 7 November.
During the trial, Gayus has tearfully told the judge that we was very stressed detained at the headquarters of the Police Mobile Brigade since last July, therefore has has been asking for leaves like the other detainees.
According to reports, since he was detained Gayus has left 68 times. That was possible because he bribed the warden with 368 Million Rupiah. Besides, he has also paid One and a Half Million Rupiah per Week. Because of this, the Police have arrested nine officers responsible for his detention.
The above clearly shows that our country's detention and prison system is very bad whereby detainees who have lots of money can do things they want to do.
Due to which fact, I hope that the government and the Parliament would set up an independent body to investigate this case thoroughly, including who arrange Gayus' trip to Bali, what did he do and who did he met there.This must be done considering that Gayus was indicted for his involvement in the Tax Mafia cases where he has helped certain businessmen in Tax Crime.
For the purpose of this investigation, it would be best if Gayus is not given access to his money and/or meet people, thus should be isolated.
