Targeting Pelindo II

Tuesday, July 11 2017 00:00 WIB

For a long time, nothing had been heard about the House of Representatives (DPR) Special Committee for the Pelindo II case when suddenly it dropped a bombshell. Established in 2016 at a time of tense relations between Minister for State-owned Enterprises (SOE) Rini Soemarno and the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), the Special Committee ordered the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) to carry out an investigatory audit. Last month, the results were announced, and they put Rini in a difficult position: she was deemed negligent for agreeing to the extension of the contract between Pelindo II and Hutchison Port Holdingsa process marked by indications of breaches of laws, ministerial regulations and the company's own articles of association. According to the BPK, the losses to the state amounted to more than Rp4 trillion.

For some time rumors were abound that this case was engineered so Rini can be forced to leave the cabinet. Hearsay about unreconcilable dispute between her and PDI-P chairperson Megawati Sukarnoputri also was widespread. The Pelindo II Special Committee, chaired by PDI-P politician Rieke Diah Pitaloka, initially questioned Rini about alleged corruption in the procurement of cranes and Pelindo II investments. Subsequently the focus shifted to the extension of the contract with Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT), the company managing the Tanjung Priok container port.
