Whisnu said the case was attended by the National Police Head of Professional and Security Division (Propam) Division, Head of Police Investigation Supervision Bureau (Birowasdik), and head of General Supervision Inspectorate (Irwasum Polri), to Head of Police Legal Division (Kadivkum Polri).
Whisnu added that his party had found new findings and would be submitted to the Public Relations of the Police.
Previously, Bareskrim investigated allegations of a fictitious company created by ACT to commit money laundering crimes (TPPU). The company was founded as if it were operating under the ACT.
“The allegations of using new companies as shells for the ACT company are investigated. So it's as if the company is operating under ACT, but it's the same that they are themselves. There is company A, company B, company C, yes, he also made it," said Whisnu on Thursday, July 14, 2022.
