Jakarta, IO – The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) said that Surya Darmadi (SD), the suspect in the alleged corruption case related to a land use change of oil palm land in Riau, has caused a whopping Rp104 trillion in state losses, said Deputy Attorney General for Special Crimes (Jampidsus) Febrie Adriansyah, referring to the estimate from the Development Finance Comptroller (BPKP).

“Initially, it was Rp78 trillion. The latest calculation by BPKP investigators found a state loss to the tune of Rp4.9 trillion in financial losses and Rp99.2 trillion in economic losses. So the figure has changed from the initial estimate,” said Febrie, as reported by CNN Indonesia, Tuesday (30/8).

Febrie revealed that AGO did not only use state financial loss instruments in investigating this case, but also state economic losses.

“Because the scope is wider, all the state losses are calculated, so the figure is huge,” he said.
