DenPost reports that three individual suspected of involvement in the corruption of sign taxes at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport will soon be called by State Prosecutors.
Aditywarman of the State Prosecutor's office confirmed that three suspect - identified as Purwati, Nur Sapto and Chris Sridana who will all be interviewed as prosecutors continue to develop a case for trial.
Unprepared to commit exactly when the three would be called, Adityawarman did confirm that the number of suspects in the tax manipulation case remained at three.
Earlier an Assistant for Special Criminal Cases (Aspidus) from the State Prosecutor's Office, Sudharma, confirmed that Bali prosecutors had uncovered indications of the corruption of sign tax revenues at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport involving employees of the Airport Authority - Angkasa Pura I.
One of the suspects, Purwanto, is the previous general manager of Angkasa Pura I. Meanwhile, Nur Sapto was formerly employed at Angkasa Pura I before being transferred to become general manager of the Balikpapan airport.
Other information suggests that taxes on signage at the airports have been manipulated since 2009.
Unlike the case of a massive manipulation of parking fees uncovered during an internal audit by Angkasa Pura I, the current case involving tax payments on advertisements managed by PT Penata Sarana Media was discovered based on information provided by a third-party source.
Prosecutors are unprepared to estimate the amount of losses suffered by the State due to tax manipulation, except to say the amount runs into the billions of rupiah.
