Djoko Susilo, a defendant in the driving simulator procurement graft case, could be mired in a string of other corruption cases as investigators continue to look into a large chunk of assets that still remains even after a series of recent high-value confiscations, an official from the anti-corruption commission said.

“[In terms of his wealth] there is still a possibility we will include that in other cases,” Bambang Widjojanto, deputy chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), said on Sunday.

Bambang declined to elaborate on the cases investigated by the KPK in which Djoko could be involved, but confirmed investigators are still tracing his assets.

There remains a possibility that Djoko’s remaining assets would be included in the prosecutor’s charges. “We can also add that to the charges,” Bambang said.

Head of the government’s Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) Yunus Husein said so far officials have only managed to confiscate a small portion of Djoko’s assets.

“Only 30 percent has been confiscated. Can you imagine that this is all they have seized while another 70 percent remains untouched?” Yunus said after testifying at Djoko’s hearing at the Jakarta Anti-Corruption Court on Friday.

As such, Yunus said the KPK could request a warrant from the court to seize what remains of Djoko’s wealth.

So far, officials have confiscated a total of 41 assets belonging to the defendant which comprise 28 properties, three gas stations, four cars and six buses.

The assets include the confiscated house and buildings in the Harvestland residential complex in Jalan Raya Kuta, Bali, as well as 7,000 square meters of land in the island’s Sudimara Tabanan village.

Djoko faces bribery and money laundering charges over a Rp 200 billion ($19.2 million) project to procure driving simulators for the police’s traffic unit.

    This guy’s amazing (in a negative sense though). SO far, as I remember they confiscated around $ 14 Million in assets and that is supposedly just about 30 percent of this total wealth?
    Corrupt as corrupt can get!
    But I’m certain he is already busy working on a new PowerPoint slideshow to explain also this remaining 70 percent…

      And he is just one of hundreds, if not thousands roaming out there enjoying the same benefits of being an official…
