Beside create own beef meat, Indonesia has been imported beef
meat from another country for many years. For transfer the meat
Indonesia have a quota of the meat can be transferred from the another
country to Indonesia. Its happen in 2011, Indonesia slashed quotas on
beef imports to boost domestic production. But the side effect of that is
the prices that go up and up. Its also create a corrupt system where
quotas go to the highest bidder. An investigation by Komisi Pemberantas
Korupsi (KPK) has toppled the president of the Partai Keadilan Sejahtera
(PKS), who resigned after being accused of receiving bribe form
executives of a major meat importer, Indoguna. Some beef importers
also began bribing officials to get a share of the quota, and smuggled
beef into the country. Indonesia Meat Importers Association executive
director Thomas Sembiring told The Straits Times that So long as meat
import quotas are imposed and enforcement is not transparent, graft will
remain a problem. Bribery, corruption its already in their bone
marrow. You have to cut down maybe two generation to get rid of it.
Late last month, PKS presiden Luthfi Hasan Ishaaq resigned and was
detained after his aide Ahmad Fathanah was caught with 1 billion rupah
($103,000). The money was allegedly a bribe from indoguna directors to
Lutfi, who has influence with officials at the Agriculture Ministry led by
fellow PKS member Suswono.

the bribe, and the Indoguna Company that bribe the PKS expresiden.
b. In this case, the Jaksa Penuntut Umum (JPU) of the KPK charges
Lutfi to Article 12 letter a, or article 5, paragraph 2 in conjunction

with Article 5, paragraph 1 letter a, or Article 11 of the Act (the


Act) 31 Year 1999 on Eradication of corruption, in conjunction with
Article 55 paragraph (1) to 1 Book of the Law of Criminal Law
(Penal code). Besides snared Article corruption, Lutfi also charged
under Article 3 and Article 5 of Law No. 8 of 2010 on the
Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering, in conjunction
with Article 55 paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code to 1 in
conjunction with Article 65 paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code.
According to Attorney Avni, Lutfi as a member of Parliament in the
period 2009-2014, which allegedly received funds contrary to his
duty. Allegations of money laundering because of the acquisition of
the assets of former President of the PKS does not fit with income
as a member of the DPR.
2. Yes. The Indoguna company bribe the ex-presiden PKS to get extra
quotas for the import beef meat.
3. Yes. Lutfi as a member of the DPR also who has influence with officials
at the Agriculture Ministry use his authorithy to give Indoguna extra
quotas of import beef meat.
4. If the high quotas of import

meat

beef

enter

the

market

uncontrollable so the local product of the meat will go lower and it will
cause losess to the local product. its also create a meat in the
country that meat come from to go up and up because the meat is
sent to Indonesia.
5. The government want to limit the import of the beef meat for
increase the local product of beef meat, but the Indoguna company
want to increase their profit with import more beaf meat by bribe the
Lutfi that demand more money for his self, so the Lutfi and Indoguna
company create a cooperation to fulfill their desire.
