Indonesia jails former top energy regulator for bribery - Straits Times

JAKARTA (AFP) - An Indonesian court jailed the former chief energy regulator for seven years Tuesday for accepting more than US$1.5 million (S$1.88 million) in bribes, in a case that increased concerns about the country's business climate. Rudi Rubiandini was caught red-handed in August at his Jakarta home with stacks of US and Singapore dollars, after anti-corruption investigators trailed a man delivering money to him. Judges at the Jakarta anti-corruption court found him guilty of accepting around US$1.4 million and S$200,000 in bribes from several companies, mainly in the energy sector.
