Global Contagion Report: Indoguna Otama

Country: Indonesia

Company Involved: Indoguna Otama

Industry: Consumer Goods

Industry Subsector: Farming & Fishing

Officials Involved: Lutfi Hasan Ishaaq, president of PKS political party; agriculture minister Soswono

Enforcement Action: Investigation

Summary: Two directors of Indoguna Utama, Juardi Effendi and Arya Abdi Effendi, were arrested with one billion rupiah (US $101,000), allegedly a bribe for Lutfi Hasan Ishaaq. The bribe was allegedly intended to influence officials to increase Indoguna's beef import quota. Many Australian importers - including Mulwarra Export, part-owned by Indoguna founder Elizabeth Liman - use Indoguna to ship beef into Indonesia. Suswono, who implemented the quotas in 2011, has denied any involvement in the bribery scheme.
