Singapore is a Safe Place to Hide

On 23 May, the Democrat Party dismissed M. Nazaruddin as it's General Treasurer for his alleged role in a Bribery case surrounding a South East Asian Games construction project and an attempt to bribe the Secretary General of of the Constitutional Court Janedri Gaffar with Sing $ 120,000.00.

On 24 May, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) asked the Immigration Office to forbid Nazaruddin from traveling outside Indonesia so as to facilitate investigation on the allegations against him.
Unfortunately, Nazarrudin has departed for Singapore the night before immediately after he was dismissed by his party.

KPK also targeted Nunun Nurbaeti. wife of former Vice Chief of the National Police now a member of the House of Representatives of the Welfare Justice Party (PKS) Adang Darajatun, who has recently been named a Suspect in the Bribery of members of the House of Representatives during the election of Miranda Gultom as the Deputy Chairperson of the Bank Indonesia.

Until now Nunun cannot be questioned because she was reported to be suffering Amnesia, can't remember what happened to her in the past, and before she was named a Suspect Nunun went to Singapore for medical treatment.

Before that, there were other people wanted by the National Police who ran away to Singapore. One of them was ex Tax man Gayus Tambunan who was investigated by the Police for allegations of corruption. Luckily the National Police was able to persuade Gayus to return to Jakarta.

Beside that, there was also Anggodo Wijaya who was found guilty of corruption by the Court in Jakarta, but cannot be jailed because he ran away to Singapore before the authorities arrested him.

The fact that Indonesian and Singapore do not have extradition treaty has made it impossible for Indonesian law enforcement agencies to ask Singapore to turn anyone who broke the laws in Indonesia if they go and hide in Singapore.

However, I hope that  Indonesia and Singapore would soon sign an extradition treaty, especially that both are members of the Association of South East Asia Nations (ASEAN) which in 2015 will become the ASEAN Community.

Suffering amnesia and hanging out in Singapore. They have it worked out?

@Peter/Kiwi,
Due to no extradition treaty, Singapore would not cooperate with our authorities. They would just enjoy getting lots of money stolen from our country.

Actually, it's all not about the Singapore as great place to hide, but the system and the man behind it which made this happened easier...less response to handle. Nice share and happy blogging!

@Wisata Murah,
Terima kasih atas pujian anda.
Sebagai tetangga dekat dan sesama anggota ASEAN harusnya Singapore mau bekerjasama dengan Indonesia dalam penegakkan hukum, jangan hanya mau menikmati uangnya saja.

@Iskarudji,
Yes you are right, the system in our country and the man behind it which made this happened.

Singapore a safe haven for Indonesian white collar criminals?

It's not in the interest of potential graft suspects to have an extradition treaty with the city state - and it may not be in the interest of the city-state (which obviously is very willing to grant asylum to rich graft suspects) either.

I don't know about extradition treaty, but I hope National Police can bring Nunun to indonesia :D

They aren't hide in Singapore, but they feel protected there.

Multibrand said...

@R10,
Singapore telah menjadi tempat pelarian para buronan.

@Colson,
It would not be easy to have a extradition treaty.

@Vainit,
If there is extradition treaty Singapore have to help us in arresting Nunun.

@Rochman,
In really they are staying peacefully in Singapore.

sejak dulu saya ndak habis bertanya, mas harry. kenapa singapura selalu menjadi "syurga" buat koruptor, ya? apa memang sedemikian hebatnya negeri singa itu dalam memanjakan "tamu"-nya?

Multibrand said...

@Sawali,
Pasti Singapore menjamu tamu2 khusunya secara luar biasa, karena mereka bawa uang sangat banyak. Untuk negara tsb tidak masalah bahwa uangnya hasil merampok atau bukan.
