CEO of Angkasa Pura I Banned from International Travel Due to Suspected Involvement in Corruption in Purchase of Fire-Fighting Equipment
The CEO of PT Angkasa Pura I, Tommy Soetomo, is banned from leaving the Country due to his status as a suspect in an ongoing corruption investigation by Indonesia’s Anti-Corruption Agency (KPK). Quoted by Nusa Bali, a spokesman for the State Prosecutor’s Office said, “Effective September 23, 2014, he (Tommy Soetomo) has been placed on a foreign travel ban.”
Soetomo is suspected of corrupting State funds in the purchase of five fire trucks for use by PT Angkasa Pura I in the management of major airports in Indonesia. The value of the five fire trucks was put at Rp. 63 billion (US$5.25 million). Also named as a suspect in the corruption case was a director of PT Scientek Computindo, Hendra Liem. Tommy Soetomo was the object of a lambasting on Balidiscovery.com after he publicly boasted that Bali’s newly renovated Ngurah Rai International Airport was, in his opinion, among the world best and most beautiful air gateways.
