The Attorney General’s Office building in Blok M, South Jakarta, looks sold out after being engulfed in the red rooster, Sunday (23/8/2020)
The reason is, Joko who was one of the witnesses in the fire case reportedly had hundreds of millions of savings.
The police then audited the AGO cleaning service accounts which were suspected of having a balance of Rp 100 million.
As a result, the police did not find any suspicious transactions in Joko’s account.
“There are no suspicious things,” said the Director of General Crimes at Bareskrim Polri Brigadier General (Pol) Ferdy Sambo during a press conference at the Bareskrim Building, South Jakarta, Friday (23/10/2020).
According to Ferdy, Joko collected the money in the account through a long process.
“Open the account, we check. It turns out that as a result, the total number of that many goes through a long process,” he said.
Now, the police have named a total of eight suspects in the AGO fire case.
The five suspects with the initials T, H, S, K, and IS worked as masons.
At the time of the incident, they were carrying out renovation activities in the personnel bureau hall on the 6th floor of the building which was the location of the fire source.
According to the police, the builders smoked, causing a fire.
They smoke even though there are flammable substances in the room where they work.
Then, the police also named the foreman of the craftsmen with the initials UAM as a suspect.
This is because the foreman should supervise the workmen.
Two other suspects, namely, the President Director of PT APM with the initials R and the Commitment Making Officer (PPK) from the AGO with the initials NH.
The two were named suspects in relation to the procurement agreement for the TOP Cleaner brand cleaners used in the building.
Ferdy explained that the cleaner contains substances that accelerate the spread of fire.
Investigators also found that the cleaner did not have a distribution license.
“What accelerates or accelerates the fire spread in the Prosecutor’s Building is the use of lobby oil or floor cleaner with the TOP Cleaner brand,” he said.
In this case, the police admitted that they did not find an element of intent. The suspects were deemed negligent, causing the fire to break out.
