Radar Bali reports that the National Prosecutors Office has issued instructions to thoroughly investigate the case of fugitive businessman Joko Tjandra’s involvement in the Mulia Resort Project at Nusa Dua, Bali.

This development  was confirmed by Public Prosecutors and officials from Bali Police Headquarters who admitted to Radar Bali that they have “received a mandate from headquarters” to thoroughly investigate Tjandra’s involvement in the ongoing construction of the huge hotel and villa project.

The prosecutorial and police officials confirmed the order when meeting the Commission I of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali). In a hearing held at the House, the Central government’s commitment to investigate claims of manipulation and malfeasance by Joko Tjandra in the building of the Mulia Resort Project on Geger Beach in South Bali.

Political leaders from various factions in attendance at the House heard the Deputy Chief of Police for Bali, Brigadier General Untung Yoga, and an Assistant in charge of Intelligence from the Prosecutor’s office, Made Parma,  tell of ongoing investigations into how land, supposedly controlled by a wanted fugitive, managed to secure permits for a major tourism project in Bali.

Provincial legislators were surprised to hear the Deputy Chief of Police confirm that a team of investigators from National Police Headquarters has twice visited the island in order to investigate the Hotel Mulia Project. He also confirmed that the police were serious in their intent to investigate case, saying: “We are currently in the phase of collecting data. This was the job of the teams from headquarters who came to Bali.”

The explanation offered by Bali prosecutors was more detailed. Prosecutorial intelligence office Parma confirmed that two formal written instructions have been issued by Jakarta ordering the collection of evidence and data for review by a team of investigators from Jakarta. He also confirmed that five different institutions had been summoned for explanations in the case including the Badung Regency Tourism Office, the Environment Agency, Public Works Department (Bina Marga), Zoning Officials (Cipta Karya) and the Research and Development Section of the Badung Administration (Lutbang Badung).

After those interviews were completed a report was sent to the National Prosecutor’s Office with the appending code “R” barring publication of the results locally in Bali.

A member of Commission I of DPRD-Bali, Dewa Nyoman Rai spoke to the officials and the House, saying the main problem rests with the Regent of Badung, A.A Gde Agung, who he insisted must also come under official investigation. Rai told the House that law enforcement in Bali was in disarray and he doubted the case can be finally and definitely resolved.

Rai used the platform to launch a personal attack on Made Parma from the prosecutor’s office, claiming Parma mishandled a  former case involving the legislator in the Bulelelng regency. Rai said at that time Parma threatened to incarcerate him without any proof, relenting finally and admitting there was no case to be brought. Dewa Nyoman Rai challenged Rai to call the Regent of Badung and investigate his involvement in the Mulia case.

Made Parma did not respond or react to Rai’s verbal attacks except to say Rai’s case in Buleleng was inherited from a former prosecutor in Bulelelng who was eventually "transferred" to a new locale. He said he welcome any suggestions and input from legislators.

Another legislator, Cok Budi Suryawan, used the occasion to raise questions about the supposed “loss” of a building owned by the Badung regency worth Rp. 39 billion (US$4.3 million).

Suryawan also raised objections to illegal fees charges by police for “favorite” car registration numbers known locally as “plat cantik.
