No Law Was Violated In Bank Century Bail Out, Says Attorney General

Attorney General Hendarman Supandji said on Monday that his office had not found any indications of crime in the Rp 6.7 trillion ($710 million) Bank Century bailout case. Hendarman made the statement during a hearing with Commission III of the House of Representatives. He said the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) had investigated 15 witnesses from the Central Bank and Deposit Insurance Agency. “We have not found any indication of law violation,” Hendarman said. However, the conclusion is temporary. The AGO will conclude the Bank Century investigation at the end of its 100-day program in January 2010. Meanwhile, the result of an audit by the Supreme Audit Agency concluded Bank Century is a “failing bank.” The hearing was still ongoing at midday. Hendarman was explaining about the AGO’s investigation into the alleged misuse of power and bribery cases naming KPK officials Bibit Samad Rianto and Chandra M Hamzah as suspects.
