“It was found that there was sufficient evidence to be collected at the investigation stage by naming and announcing 2 parties as suspects,” KPK Deputy Chairman Johanis Tanak said during a press conference at KPK Juang Building, South Jakarta on Thursday (11 /5/2023).

For the purposes of the investigation process, the investigation team detained Trisna Sutisna for the first 20 days, from 11 May 2023 to 30 May 2023 at the KPK Detention Center Branch at Puspomal Command Headquarters, North Jakarta.

Meanwhile, the KPK did not arrest Catur Prabowo because he admitted to being ill when summoned today. KPK gave Chess an ultimatum to cooperate on the next summons.

“KPK has reminded suspect CP to be present at the next scheduled summons from the investigation team,” Johanis said.

Continuing, around 2017, Catur directed Trisna and PT Amarta Karya’s accounting department officials to prepare a sum of money intended for Catur’s personal needs.

“To fulfill the order, the source of the money will later be taken from the payment of various projects undertaken by PT AK Persero,” said Johanis.

Long story short, Trisna along with several employees of PT Amarta Karya then created and searched for a business entity in the form of a CV which was used to receive subcontractor payments from the state company without doing actual (fictitious) subcontractor work .

So, in 2018, several fictitious business entities of CV were set up as vendors who would accept various payment transactions from PT Amarta Karya project assets and this was fully aware of Catur and Trisna.

For submission of supplier payment budgets, Catur always provides a “continuing” disposition accompanied by an approval for a payment order (SPM) signed by Trisna.
