Muhammad Yusrizki, Chair of the Standing Committee on Renewable Energy of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) and President Director of PT Basis Utama Prima, was detained by the Attorney General’s Office (AGO).

In addition to Yusrizki, the AGO also investigated Hapsoro ‘Happy’ Sukmonohadi in relation to the Base Transceiver Station (BTS) infrastructure project for the 2020-2022 period.

Yuzriski investigated by Attorney General Office

Yusrizki is a well-known businessman who has served at Kadin since October 2021, and is the Chairman of Kadin Net Zero Hub.

Yusrizki’s company partners with Huawei as a subcontractor partner to work on BTS. In this case it was appointed to provide solar panel systems in the BTS infrastructure procurement project. In its implementation there were criminal indications along with several other suspects. Currently, he is being held for the next 20 days at the Salemba Detention Center.

Other suspects involved in the crime are Minister of Communication and Informatics Johnny G. Plate, President Director of BAKTI Kominfo Anang Achmad Latif, President Director of PT Mora Telematika Indonesia Galubang Menak, and Expert Staff of Human Development of Universitas Indonesia of 2020 Yohan Suryanto.

“After an intensive examination, investigators have found sufficient evidence so that today we will raise the status of the person concerned as a suspect,” said Kuntadi, the Director of Investigation at the AGO.

“He is one of the directors of a goods supply company,” said Haryoko Ari Prabowo, Head of the Sub-Directorate of Investigations at the Junior Attorney General’s Directorate for Special Crimes (Jampidsus) at the AGO.

Hapsoro ‘Happy’ Sukmonohadi investigated

Kuntadi explained that the AGO will investigate all parties related to the alleged corruption case in the BTS project, including Happy Sukmonohadi, the husband of Puan Maharani and the son in low of Megawati Soekarnoputri, who is suspected as the owner of PT Basis Utama Prima (BUP). However, Kejagung is still tracing the case’s connection with him and his involvement.

BUP is owned by Hapsoro with 99.9% share ownership and PT Mohammad Mangkuningrat 0.1%. Meanwhile, PT Mohammad Mangkuningrat is a company controlled by Mohammad Arsjad Rasjid Prabu Mangkuningrat (Arsjad Rasjid) with 98.37% ownership and the remaining 1.63% is owned by Lis Junitati Rasjid Prabu Mangkuningrat.

“We always trace it to the end. But we act based on the presence or absence of evidence,” said Kuntadi, on June 15, 2023.

Kuntadi added that the AGO will proceed with the case according to the evidence available and therefore it must not be careless in determining the next step of investigation.

“We don’t want to speculate, if there is no evidence we cannot act,” he added.
