Yosep Parera Admits Giving Bribes

After being named a suspect, Yosep Parera opened his voice. He claims to be a victim of the system. He said every aspect in Indonesia requires money.

“This is a bad system in our country, where every aspect up to the top level has to spend money. One of the victims is us,” said Yosep Parera at the KPK Building, Jalan Kuningan Persada, South Jakarta, Friday (23/9/2022).

He and his fellow lawyer Eko Suparno admitted to giving bribes. The money was given so that the Intidana Savings and Loan Cooperative was declared bankrupt.

“Me and Mas Eko as lawyers admit that we honestly handed over the money to the Supreme Court, but we don’t know whether he is a clerk or not,” he said.

“The point is we will open everything, we are ready to accept the punishment because it is our obedience. We feel our morality is very low, we are willing to be punished severely,” added Yosep.
