The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is currently investigating alleged corruption cases linked to PT Telkom, the commission’s chief investigator has said.

“We have one corruption case undergoing investigation and another one under examination,” Asep Guntur Rahayu, KPK’s Director of Investigation, said on Tuesday, May 14, 2024.

Both cases are progressing simultaneously, with one in the investigative phase involving alleged corruption in the procurement of fictitious projects by a third party acting as a broker in PT Telkom’s subsidiary, PT Sigma Cipta Caraka (SCC) or Telkomsigma.

The case under examination cannot be disclosed publicly, as per KPK’s practice of maintaining confidentiality during investigations. However, Asep mentioned the possibility of the scrutinized case evolving into multiple cases upon advancing to the investigative stage.

“We’ll see, later, during the investigation, it could lead to several cases,” Asep said.

Earlier, the KPK announced on February 1, 2024, the initiation of an investigation into suspected corruption cases within PT Telkom’s subsidiary, PT Sigma Cipta Caraka (SCC) or Telkomsigma, spanning from 2017 to 2022.

Preliminary estimates by the BPKP Audit Team suggest significant financial losses due to the suspected corruption cases.

Following KPK’s protocol, detailed information about the cases will be disclosed upon the arrest and detention of individuals identified as suspects. Asep assured that the legal proceedings adhere to established procedures.
