Another face missing from the inauguration of Bali’s governor on Thursday, August 29, 2013, was the Regent of Karangasem, Wayan Gredeg.

NusaBali reports that Gredeg is thought to have been named as a suspect by the Bali Police in a corruption investigation of a piping project in Karangasem. Investigators are alleging that Rp. 680 million (US$ 68,000) was corrupted from a total budget of Rp. 29 billion (US$2.9 million).

Also named as a suspect in the case by police is Karangasem’s director of public works (Kadis PU), Nyoman Arnawa.

A source of NusaBali working in the criminal division of the Bali police confirmed the piping case in Karangasem was under active investigation. The police source also confirmed on Friday, August 30, 2013, that Gredeg has been named as a suspect.

Despite being named a suspect, police say that Gredeg has yet to be taken into custody or confined to house arrest. Nyoman Arnawa, the PU official, has been listed as a suspect by police in since 2012 when the investigation commenced.

Also reportedly included in the suspect list are employees of the contractor PT Adi Karya.

Suspect or Witness?

In contradiction to the source cited by NusaBali in the criminal division of the Bali policei, the police spokesman for the Bali Police, Hariadi, told the press that Gredeg was not yet a suspect, listed only as a witness in the case at this time.

The case dates back to 2009 when a project for piping was publicly tendered by the Karangasem Regency. Two companies, PT Waskita Karya and PT Adhi Karya both bid on the project, resulting in PT Waskita Karya being declared as the winner in the bidding process for submitting the lowest price.

Apparently ignoring the declared winner of the project bid, the Public Works Department in Karangasem took control of the project and granted the work assignment to the losing bidder, PT Adhi Karya.

Unhappy with the outcome, PT Waskita Karya then reported the case to the Bali Police and the Bali Prosecutors' office.
