Syarifuddin Temenggung released on bail

Jakarta Prosecution Office had released former IBRA Chairman Syafruddin Temenggung on bail after almost sevent months live behind the bars on an alleged involvement in a corruption case, reported.

It's not clear the reasons behind Syafruddin's release. But he is released on bail (Rp250 million) paid to South Jakarta District Court on Thursday. No progress has been made in the last few months on the case after his arrest in February.
Read my previous posts for background:
1) Syafruddin named a suspect

2) News roundup

Rp 250 Million (=US$28,000) as bail?? Wow... that's cheap!!
Just for the sake of curiousity, if that amount translated into numbers of days, one day = US$ 1,000, Mr. ST could enjoy at least 28 days outside of the locker...
If one day = US$ 500, days enjoyed would be 56 days..., one day = US$ 100 => 280 days... WOW!! ALMOST A YEAR Dudes!! Can someone share the info on what exchange rate used for a day out here?

I dont think this man will ever be proven guilty. He and his master, Laksamana Sukardi, nicely engineered the legalization of their corrupt acts, ie. selling IBRA assets at ridiculously low prices that they chose. In order to get the ridiculosly low prices, buyers of the assets simply paid commissions to their front men with companies in BVI, Jersey, or Cayman Island. These two men utilized their engineering knowledge they learned in ITB Bandung to engineer their corrupt acts. Bravo to these two crooks who successfully made the then Presidend take the ultimate responsibility. They simply perfected the art of corruption that blossomed during Suharto era. And They may want to decide to franchise that knowledge one day. Who knows.

This man's boss, Laksamana Sukardi, should get the highest corruption medal this nation can give. He schemed the biggest robbery in the history of mankind. Even his man, Syafruddin Tumenggung, who executed the robbery is exempted from its legal ramifications.

Laksamana agressively led the anti corruption campaigns againts Suharto during the Era Reformasi. When in power he ironically led the emergence of corruption renaissance, ie. the art of legalized corruption.
