JAKARTA - The Financial Services Authority (OJK) says it is prepared to facilitate the Audit Board’s investigation into the PT Asuransi Jiwasraya (Persero) scandal and support the Attorney General’s Office, which has alleged that corruption in the scandal resulted in a Rp 13.7 trillion loss for the state.

“OJK will facilitate the Audit Board’s further investigation while also providing data and information to support the Attorney General’s Office,” OJK spokeswoman Sekar Putih Djarot told Bisnis Indonesia, Thursday (9/1).

At a press conference on Wednesday (8/1), Audit Board Chairman Agung Firman Sampurna said there was a possibility that the Jiwasraya scandal had a systemic impact on Indonesia’s financial services sector due to the company’s 17,000 investors and 7 million customers.

As previously reported by IDNFinancials.com, so far the Attorney General’s Office has found 5,000 transactions that are deemed suspicious in the scandal. In addition, 98 witnesses related to the case have also been interrogated. (MS)
