The 303 consortia have been in the spotlight as the murder case of Brigadier Nopriansyah Yosua Hutabarat or Brigadier J.

It started with the circulation of a chart on social media showing the names and roles of people suspected of being involved in an illegal business network.

The graphic depicted Sambo ruling an "Empire of the 303 Consortium" alongside other police generals.

The name Consortium 303, refers to a consortium of businesses believed to be behind some large online gambling sites operating in Indonesia, where Islam is the majority and gambling is considered haram.

Code 303 itself refers to Article 303 of the Criminal Code concerning gambling.

In response to this, Indonesian National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo had time to answer questions about the issue. He said the National Police Propam was investigating the issue.
