JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com
— Penyidik Subdirektorat Keamanan Negara Ditreskrimum Polda Metro Jaya akhirnya menetapkan pengusaha Oesma Sapta Odang sebagai tersangka. Ketua Umum Himpunan Kerukunan Tani Indonesia itu dinilai sudah cukup terbukti melakukan tindak penganiayaan terhadap broker properti, Nofel Saleh Hilabi.

Kepala Subdit Kamneg Polda Metro Jaya Ajun Komisaris Besar Bolly Tifaona menerangkan bahwa Oesma ditetapkan sebagai tersangka sehari setelah Nofel melapor, yakni pada 26 Juli 2012. "Sudah kami tetapkan sehari setelah korban melapor karena kami sudah memiliki dua alat bukti yang cukup untuk menetapkan dia sebagai tersangka," kata Bolly, Selasa (31/7/2012), saat dihubungi wartawan.

Dua alat bukti tersebut adalah hasil visum serta keterangan saksi-saksi di lapangan dan korban. "Saat ini yang bersangkutan masih ada di Singapura. Kami masih menunggu dia tiba di Jakarta untuk dilakukan pemeriksaan," ujar Bolly.

Oesman, kata Bolly, nantinya hanya diperiksa dan belum akan ditahan. "Tidak (ditahan), kami periksa dulu," ucapnya.

Oesman dijerat dengan Pasal 351 KUHP tentang penganiayaan dan Pasal 335 KUHP tentang perbuatan tidak menyenangkan. Bolly menuturkan bahwa pihaknya sudah memberitahukan penetapan tersangka terhadap Oesman melalui kuasa hukumnya.

"Pembelaan soal siapa yang berutang tidak jadi soal, yang jelas kami fokus pada tindak pemukulannya," kata Bolly.

Diberitakan sebelumnya, Oesman Sapta Odang dilaporkan ke Polda Metro Jaya atas dugaan penganiayaan terhadap seorang broker properti bernama Nofel Saleh Hilabi. Pemukulan ini dipicu karena masalah utang piutang senilai Rp 14 miliar. Peristiwa pemukulan itu terjadi pada tanggal 25 Juli 2012 pukul 15.00 di kantor Oesman, The City Tower (ICBC) Lantai 19, Jakarta Pusat.

Ketika itu, Novel sudah membuat janji bertemu dengan Oesman membicarakan rumah di Jalan Denpasar, Kuningan, Jakarta, yang dibeli Oesman, tetapi belum dibayar. "Diketahui tunggakannya sampai Rp 14 miliar, sudah setahun lebih tunggakan itu tidak dibayar terlapor. Korban datang bersama notarisnya, Rifat Tadjoedin, ke kantor terlapor untuk bicara soal rumah itu," tutur Bolly Tifaona, Jumat (27/7/2012), di Mapolda Metro Jaya.

Pertemuan antara Nofel dan Oesman ternyata tidak berjalan lancar. Oesman menanyakan keberadaan paman Nofel, yakni Ali Muhammad alias Ali Idung, yang sedang berada di Jambi. Setelah itu, Oesman naik pitam. Ia berdiri sambil tangan kanannya memegang HP Nokia E90 warna hitam, memukul korban di bagian muka hingga berdarah di bibir dan memar pada pipi rahang sebelah kanan. Pemukulan itu dibarengi dengan perkataan yang diucapkan Oesman, "Kamu yang jujur jangan bohong! Jangan mau diperalat dan jadi korban. Kamu sudah saya anggap anak."

Setelah kejadian itu, korban meninggalkan kantor Oesman dan melapor ke polisi.

 

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta: Pengusaha kakap yang juga Ketua Umum Himpunan Kerukunan Tani Indonesia, Oesman Sapta Odang, dilaporkan ke Kepolisian Daerah Metro Jaya, Jumat 27 Juli 2012 ini. Oesman diduga melakukan tindak kekerasan atas Noval, seorang broker properti yang juga keponakan pengusaha otomotif, Ali Muhammad alias Ali Idung.

"Oesman memukul Noval dengan telepon genggamnya di bagian wajah dan bibir," kata pengacara korban, Hotma Sitompoel Jumat 27 Juli 2012. Insiden ini bermula ketika Noval datang ke kantor Oesman di Jalan MH Thamrin pada Rabu sore, 25 Juli 2012. Noval datang untuk menagih sisa pembayaran rumah milik Ali Idung yang belum dilunasi Oesman.

Menurut Hotma, Oesman Sapta membeli rumah milik Ali Idung di Jalan Denpasar, Kuningan, Jakarta Selatan, senilai Rp 28 miliar setahun lalu. Ketika itu, Oesman baru membayar Rp 18 miliar. Sisanya Rp 10 miliar belum dibayar. Noval diminta menagih kekurangan pembayaran itu.

Bukannya uang yang diterima Noval, melainkan bogem mentah.

Jakarta Irjen Djoko Susilo telah ditetapkan sebagai tersangka kasus dugaan korupsi pengadaan simulator SIM tahun 2011. Untuk mendampingi proses hukum yang dijalaninya, Djoko menunjuk Hotma Sitompoel cs untuk menjadi kuasa hukumnya.

"Kami secara resmi menjadi kuasa hukumnya Pak Djoko Susilo," ujar Hotma dalam jumpa pers di kantornya, Jl Martapura No 3, Jakarta Pusat, Rabu (1/8/2012).

Selain Hotma, ada dua pengacara lainnya yang bergabung dalam satu tim. Mereka adalah Juniver Girsang dan Tommy Sihotang. Saat jumpa pers digelar, ketiga pengacara itu hadir lengkap.

"Jangan tanya lagi mana surat kuasa hukumnya. Ini kami yang dipercaya," sambung Hotma.

KPK menetapkan mantan Kakorlantas Irjen Pol Djoko Susilo yang kini menjabat Gubernur Akademi Kepolisian (Akpol) Semarang, sebagai tersangka pengadaan simulator SIM 2011. Djoko dijerat dengan pasal 2 dan pasal 3 UU 31/1999 tentang pemberantasan korupsi terkait penyalahgunaan wewenang dan memperkaya diri sendiri.

Berdasarkan hasil kesepakatan dari pertemuan Ketua KPK Abraham Samad dan Kapolri Jenderal (Pol) Timur Pradopo kemarin (31/7), KPK menangani kasus dugaan korupsi dengan tersangka Djoko. Sementara Polri memproses pejabat pembuat komitmen (PPK) dalam proyek ini. Menurut Timur karena KPK dan Polri sama-sama menjalankan tugas, termasuk penanganan korupsi, maka keduanya akan melakukan joint investigation.

 

TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA - Menyikapi penggeledahan yang dilakukan Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK) di Gedung Korps Lalu Lintas Polri, kuasa hukum Irjen Pol Djoko Susilo, Hotma Sitompul menganggap KPK sudah melakukan pelanggaran etika.

Hotma membantah bila Polri menghambat upaya KPK melakukan penyidikan dalam kasus pengadaan alat simulator SIM di Korlantas Polri.

"Pendapat tersebut tidak benar. Polri tidak pernah menghalangi dan atau menghambat proses penyidikan yang dilakukan KPK, khususnya pada saat dilakukan penggeledahan pada hari Selasa 31 Juli 2012 di gedung Korlantas Mabes Polri," jelas Hotma di kantornya, Jalan Martapura Nomor 3, Jakarta Pusat, Rabu (1/8/2012).

Pada saat itu, menurut Hotma kepolisian hanya menginformasikan kepada KPK sampai saat ini juga sedang dilakukan penyidikan oleh kepolisian dan telah ditetapkan beberapa orang tersangka.

"Dokumen-dokumen terkait dengan pengadaan Simulator SIM yang diminta KPK, juga merupakan dokumen-dokumen yang sedang menjadi objek penyidikan kepolisian," jelasnya.

Meskipun demikiann Hotma mengungkapkan bahwa pihaknya tetap menghormati proses yang sedang dilakukan KPK.

"Dapat kami sampaikan bahwa tindakan KPK terindikasi pelanggaran etika, bahkan pelanggaran hukum yang dillakukan KPK dalam proses penggeledahan dan penyitaan tersebut," ungkapnya.

Hotma pun mengatakan bahwa jangan ada pemikiran yang menganggap bila ada pihak yang tidak sependapat dengan cara kerja KPK, lalu dianggap sebagai pihak yang tidak mendukung atau anti pemberantasan korupsi.

Pihaknya tetap mendukung upaya pemberantasan korupsi, terlebih-lebih jangan ada pendapat yang mengatakan bila ada pihak yang tidak setuju dengan tindakan-tindakan atau upaya-upaya pemberantasan korupsi yang dilakukan dengan melanggar undang-undang dianggap menghambat upaya pemberantasan korupsi.

"Yang kami ingin kritisi adalah bila ada upaya pemberantasan korupsi yang dilakukan dengan cara melanggar ketentuan hukum dan undang-undang," jelas Hotma.
