Yogyakarta. A senior officer with the Yogyakarta Police has been arrested after he allegedly accepted Rp 90 million ($6,700) in bribes to help someone pass the entry examination for civil servants — without following through on the purported promise.
The officer, identified by local media as Comr. Lilik Setyono, was reported by 24-year-old Okta Nuriastuti from Bantul district. She claimed that her father, Sukamto, had heard by word of mouth about the officer being able to smoothen the application process.
Sr. Comr. Hudit Wahyudi, of the Yogyakarta Police’s criminal investigation division, said on Friday that Sukamto had paid the money in several transactions in December 2013, only to find out later that his daughter had not passed the exam and the money was not returned.
Hudit said police were still looking for an alleged accomplice in the case, the deputy chief of the Yogyakarta Police Hospital, Dr. Syah Rizal Syam Pohan.
