Six weeks since she became a suspect, former Pertamina CEO Karen Agustiawan is now detained over suspected corruption in the company’s investment in an oil block in Australia. The Attorney General’s Office believes that the acquisition did not receive the board of commissioners’ approval. There are reports circulating that some are attempting to extort Karen.
KAREN Agustiawan, now a suspect in the alleged corruption of Pertamina’s acquisition in the Basker Manta Gummy Block, Australia, in 2009, has finally been detained by Attorney General’s Office (AGO) investigators after almost seven hours of examination last Monday. The AGO has placed her at the Pondok Bambu Detention Center, East Jakarta. Karen was declared a suspect in March by the AGO, which has asked the justice and human rights ministry’s directorate-general of immigration to ban her from overseas travel. Three of her former subordinates have also been named suspects in the case.
