An officer from the Buleleng police department has been fired for committing fraud in Bali.
The Deputy Chief of the Buleleng Police Department, Kompol Yusak Agustinus Sooai, confirmed that a police officer identified as Aiptu Wayan Putra Yasa was fired from the police institution for his involvement in fraud.
“Putra Yasa was already dismissed from his corps on December 31st 2021, but the official discharge process was conducted on January 5th 2022,” Kompol Sooai said.
He explained that this punishment was part of the police institution’s commitment to enforce the rules of the corps. This includes dismissing those who violate the Bali Police Department’s Instruction Letter Number Kep/979/XII/2021.
Sooai continued the official dismission process on Wednesday (5/1), although the suspect didn’t attend the ceremony.
The investigation began when a victim filed a report concerning an incident in 2020. At the time, Putra Yasa promised him work for a government official in exchange for money. The suspect then admitted that he and his partner named Made Muliasa had conducted fraud from 2013 to 2016. He was sentenced to 4 months in prison.
“There will always be reward and punishment, but I always warn that punishment awaits offenders,” Kompol Sooai concluded.
