AGO to Re-Investigate Minister Plate


The Attorney General's Office (AGO) summoned Communications and Information Technology Minister Johnny Gerard Plate for a re-investigation following the alleged corruption of base transceiver station (BTS) tower procurement by the Telecommunications and Information Accessibility Agency (BAKTI), a public service agency under the ministry.

On March 15, a team under the Deputy Attorney General for Special Crimes will question Johnny to ascertain the extent of his supervision and accountability as a budget user. 

Kuntadi, Investigation Director at the Attorney General's Office for Special Crimes, explained that there is an element of budget exorbitance resulting from criminal conspiracy in this case.

Therefore, the Attorney General's Office is investigating the BTS project planning, which was supposed to be completed in five years but was not implemented according to plan.

"We want to understand the details of Johnny's involvement in this matter," Kuntadi said in a press release on Monday.
