Indonesia jails police general for corruption

Indonesia's anti-corruption court has found a two-star general guilty of corruption and money laundering in a high-profile case.

Insp Gen Djoko Susilo was found guilty of taking $13m (£8.4m) in bribes from a firm that supplied driving simulators when he led the traffic division.

He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined 500m rupiah ($45,000, £29,000).


Good to see someone at that level being convicted. According to this Jakarta Post article from April:

Djoko reportedly also has assets in Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia and KPK investigators have been deployed to these countries to trace them.

I wonder if the assets have been traced yet, and what will happen to them?

I don't know, look at the amount he took and the amount he was fined. I'm guessing that's intentional and he'll be in a country-club prison (or "house arrest"), and then out of the country in a year.
