REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Police has been investigating the case of alleged money laundering related to Aksi Bela Islam (rallies to defend Islam). A member of commission III of the House of Representatives (DPR) Arsul Sani has questioned the police for not investigating fundraising by community Teman Ahok (Friends of Basuki Tjahaja Purnama 'Ahok').

Arsul asked for explanation from National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian about the principal criminal in the case of the Yayasan Keadilan untuk Semua (Justice for All Foundation, YKUS). Arsul said the people also wondered why only public funds related to rallies to defend Islam that was investigated, while funds of Teman Ahok was not tracked. "We respected the authority, but what criminal act in essentially?" Arsul said in a meeting with House Commission III and National Police Chief at the Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Wednesday (Feb 22).

Previously, Tito Karnavian said, for a case that involved Chairman of the National Movement Safeguard Indonesian Council of Ulama's Fatwa (GNPF-MUI) Bachtiar Nasir, the allegations were violations of the laws of the Foundation, the laws of Banking, as well as money laundering.

Even the police have established leader of the Justice for All Foundation (YKUS) Adnin Armas as a suspect in the defend Islamic rally on November 4, 2016. Tito said the YKUS gave access to its account for Bachtiar. However, Bachtiar then gave the access to one of sharia bank officer initials IS,  as a suspect in this case, to withdraw the money.

Tito said, Act No. 28 of 2004 amendments to Law No. 16 of 2001, set that the foundation's funds can’t be used for the benefit of third party without permission of the other administrators. Adnin gave the access to other party manage it. "This foundation gave a power of attorney for Bachtiar Nasir, and then by Bachtiar Nasir it was given to the officer sharia bank officer named IS," said Tito.
