Previously, the Attorney General’s Office named four suspects in a corruption case in granting export facilities for crude palm oil which caused a shortage and an increase in cooking oil prices.
The identity of the suspects was announced directly by the Attorney General ST Burhanuddin.
He said investigators had found sufficient evidence to establish the four as suspects.
Investigators have examined at least 19 witnesses, 596 other related documents and letters as well as expert statements.
“The actions of the suspects resulted in state economic losses or resulted in the expensiveness and scarcity of cooking oil, resulting in a decrease in household consumption and small industries that use cooking oil and complicate people’s lives,” said Burhanuddin.
