Jayapura, 7/6 (jubi) – The corruption case involving First Assistant of Papua’s Regional Secretariat, Dorren Wakerkwa, and the Head of the Investment Body, John Way, will not be dismissed.
“I’ve responded the governor’s statement. Small sins, big sins are equal before God. So we consider the small or big cases are the same, therefore we need to complete the first things first. We will process those who have been suspects since 2011,” the Head of High Prosecutor Office, E.S. Maruli Hutagalung to tabloidjubi.com on Friday (7/6).
He firmly said his office would complete this case first before tackling another case. The Prosecutor Office could not handle the corruption cases based on the value of losses to the state because everyone is equal before the law.
“It was the state’s money that was stolen since 2011. Both officials were part of the last administration, so they need to be investigated first,” he said. He further said both officials are enjoying the presumption of innocence and whether they found guilty will be later decided by a court.
“About both officials, I committed to process this case to the court. Those who obstruct the case would be charged as against the Law. I hope both suspects have willingness answering the summon and not hiding behind the Provincial Government.
Both government officials, Dorren Wakerkwa and Jhon Way were alleged misused the budget for the Regional Election Commission of Lanny Jaya Regency in 2011, causing 3 billion in losses to the state. (Jubi/Indrayadi TH/rom)
