Pupuk Indonesia’s Objection
IN the Opinion of Tempo’s July 23-29, 2019 entitled All Eyes on the SOEs mentioned: “There was also a bribery case at another SOE: fertilizer company Pupuk Indonesia. In March, the company’ marketing manager was detained by the KPK for allegedly bribing member of the Golkar Faction in the House of Representatives Bowo Sidik Pangarso, in order to smooth the way for the business.”
We herewith notify that the information was not true, as already conveyed in a press statement of the Corruption Eradication Commission on Thursday, March 28, 2019. The management of Pupuk was present at the KPK to fulfill a summons to testify as a witness.
Corporate Communication Chief, PT Pupuk Indonesia (Persero)
