Joko Soegiarto Tjandra, a fugitive in the Bank Bali corruption case, is suspected to have flown to Singapore from Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea, an official at the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) said Wednesday.

According to our information, Joko Tjandra is already in Singapore. However, the AGO is coordinating with the Foreign Ministry to trace Djoko’s whereabouts,” deputy attorney general for special crimes Marwan Effendy told Antara state news agency.

The AGO has sent a third and final warrant for Joko to surrender himself by Friday afternoon at the very latest. However, Djoko’s lawyer O.C. Kaligis told Antara that he could not guarantee his client would show up at the AGO on Friday.

Joko Tjandra left the country using a chartered flight from Halim Perdanakusumah Airport in Jakarta to Port Moresby on June 10, just one day before the Supreme Court issued a verdict, upon the AGO’s request of review, sentencing Joko and former Bank Indonesia governor Syahril Sabirin to two years’ imprisonment and ordering Joko to pay Rp 546 billion (about US$54 million) as restitution to the state.

Unlike Joko, Syahril Sabirin has surrendered himself to the Attorney General’s Office.
