How Long Will Singapore Mean Safety?

Jakarta Globe, April 26, 2010

If one asks who in these modern times still believes in miracles, two members of Indonesia’s presidentially appointed Judicial Mafia Eradication Task Force would raise their hands.

Asked by the National Police to join efforts to try locate fugitive rogue tax official Gayus Tambunan who was believed to have fled to Singapore, the two members, Mas Achmad Santosa and Deny Indrayana, were daunted by the task at hand.

But fate winked in their favor, and the two tell how they spotted Gayus at a mall popular with Indonesians on the busy shopping stretch of Orchard Road.

The now-infamous mid-level tax official with millions of dollars in his bank accounts was persuaded to return home to face the law. The fact that his passport was revoked as it was found to have been fraudulently obtained helped.

Still, it was a rare break, as Singapore is also infamous: as a safe haven for Indonesian tycoons on the run and assorted graft suspects. And a skeptical public here tends to believe that Indonesia has no real interest in bringing them back. After all, while Singapore and Indonesia are good neighbors and members of the same regional organizations, and an extradition treaty was signed in 2007, it is as good as useless, because even three years on it has yet to be ratified by Indonesian lawmakers, ostensibly over a defense co-operation clause.

The Gayus case has rekindled the debate, however, and as a Jakarta Globe investigation highlights, public pressure is mounting to get the treaty ratified.
