Kadis Kominfo Badung: Tower Bodong Case Occurred Before My Tenure

/ist/Kadis Kominfo Badung Sebut Kasus Tower Bodong Bergulir Sebelum Dirinya Menjabat.

Regarding the case of fake towers in Badung Regency that led to the closure of three rooms of the Head of the Department on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, the Department of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) in Badung was involved. As a result, three rooms in the Badung Kominfo office were sealed by the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Agency.

However, the Head of the Department of Communication and Information Technology in Badung Regency, I Gusti Ngurah Gede Jaya Saputra, denied that the ongoing tower case involved him as the department’s head.

According to his statement, the current case of fake towers is related to two cooperation agreements (PKS) made in 2016 and 2017. At that time, there were indeed two five-year cooperation agreements (PKS) that were valid until 2021 and 2022. 

However, Saputra became the Head of Badung Kominfo in 2020, when the two PKS had already been in effect before his appointment. Therefore, he asserted that the case had nothing to do with him. 

Nevertheless, the department still respects the legal process that is taking place. On Thursday, April 6, 2023, the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Agency returned to the Kominfo office after sealing three rooms the day before. 

According to Saputra, the investigators’ visit was part of the investigation process. During the communication between the investigators and the Kominfo team, they cross-checked some documents from the office.
