Malinda admits transferring Rp 21.5b to in-law's account
Graft defendant Inong Malinda Dee says she transferred a total of Rp 21.5 billion (US$2.41 million) from her former clients' accounts at Citibank to a personal account belonging to her brother-in-law, Ismail bin Janim.
The former senior relationship manager of a Jakarta branch of Citibank said she made the transfers between 2008 and 2010.
“Sometimes [I transferred] Rp 500 million, Rp 100 million or Rp 50 million,” Malinda told a hearing at the South Jakarta District Court on Wednesday.
She was questioned as a witness in a money laundering case, in which Ismail is standing trial as a defendant.
Malinda herself underwent at the same court earlier on Tuesday her premier hearing as a defendant in the alleged embezzlement of billions of rupiah of funds belonging to her clients while she worked at Citibank.
Malinda told the hearing on Wednesday that chunks of the Rp 21.5 billion had been transferred from her own personal account, and in some cases directly from her then clients' accounts.
She said she had never told Ismail where the funds came from, and that he had never asked.
Malinda added that a day or two after transferring the funds to Ismail's account, she usually told him to transfer those funds to four other accounts, which belonged to her, her company PT Eksklusif Jaya Perkasa, her sister Visca Lovitasari and her husband Andhika Gumilang.
