Airbus: Indonesia Aircraft Deals


Contents

Introduction
contents

Airbus distributed millions in bribes to senior employees, former high-ranking military and government officials, or their family members in order to sell at least sixty-four defense and commercial aircraft to three Indonesian airlines: PT Dirgantara Indonesia; PT Garuda Indonesia; and Garuda’s low-cost subsidiary, PT Citilink Indonesia.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice report, an organization (allegedly PT Ardyaparamita Ayuprakarsa), worked for both Airbus’s Commercial and Defense & Space Division in Indonesia. As such, the corruption-related information regarding the commercial sales has been included in this case.

In February 2012, PT Dirgantara Indonesia procured at least nine C-295s, a tactical military transport aircraft, after receiving €16.1 million in bribes. This case is one of several that were investigated by French, British and American authorities and settled in a deferred prosecution agreement in 2020. While the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) report does not divulge who was involved in the purchase of the C-295s, the former President-Director of PT Dirgantara Indonesia, Budi Santoso, and the former Commerce Director, Irzal Rinaldi Zailani, have faced similar corruption charges in other deals during the same timeframe that the C-295s were procured.

Additionally, the Wall Street Journal reported that during Airbus’s liquidation process, a series of disreputable third-party agent fees were uncovered, including a promised payment for eleven anti-submarine Panther rotorcraft helicopters that PI Dirgantara Indonesia purchased from Airbus in 2014. Santoso was also involved in the procurement of these helicopters, however, the details of this purchase are limited at this time.

Last, from July 2011 to December 2012, PT Garuda Indonesia, and its subsidiary, PT Citilink Indonesia, purchased at least fifty-five commercial aircraft from Airbus after receiving $3.3 million in bribes. Four actors have been convicted and sentenced thus far: Emirsyah Satar, the former President Director of PT Garuda Indonesia; Hadinoto Soedigno, the former Technical Director of PT Garuda Indonesia and former Director of Production of PT Citilink Indonesia; Soetikno Soedarjo, beneficial owner of Connaught International Pte Ltd and PT Ardyaparamita Ayuprakarsa; and Captain Agus Wahjudo, Garuda Executive Project Manager.

Summary of Corruption Allegations
contents

First, Airbus entered into a firm contract with PT Dirgantara Indonesia to supply nine C-295 transport aircraft to Indonesia's Ministry of Defence. Airbus’s C-295 aircraft were manufactured in the company’s subsidiary in Spain, but certain defense articles that fell under the American International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) were exported to Spain from the U.S. When these items are exported, the U.S. suppliers have to file an export license application with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). When Airbus completes the production of the C-295 and sells it to a customer, the company must file a subsequent export license that alerts the DDTC who the new end user is. As part of these re-export applications, Airbus has to include statements regarding ITAR Part 130, which refers to whether or not the company paid, offered, or agreed to pay political contributions, fees, or commissions in connection with these sales. Airbus either made no statement regarding Part 130, or filed false re-export license applications to the DDTC regarding Part 130 claiming that the transaction met the requirements.

In other words, Airbus paid €16.1 million in bribes to “high-ranking” military and government officials in Indonesia and withheld that information on their re-export licenses.

Second, PT Garuda Indonesia executives: Emirsyah Satar, Hadinoto Soedigno, and Capt Agus Wahjudo were deemed proven to have received large bribes and gifts in connection with the acquisition of numerous Airbus commercial aircraft. The bribes came from Airbus, Roll-Royce, and Avions de Transport Regional (ATR) through intermediary Soetikno Soedarjo, beneficial owner of Connaught International and PT Ardhyaparamita Ayuprakarsa. The bribes were designed to interfere in the procurement process at PT Garuda Indonesia, namely for the purchase of Airbus A330 and A320 aircraft. Soedarjo bribed all three executives: Satar received cash and other benefits sent directly to a company he and his late wife owned in the British Virgin Islands, Soedigno received money into his Singapore bank account, and Capt Wahjudo received money as pension for his retirement in relation to the procurement of aircraft at PT Garuda Indonesia. Soedigno, together with Satar and Capt Wahjudo, received millions in cash bribes, as well as dinners, lodging costs, and a private plane rental. All three have since been convicted for breaching bribery and money laundering laws.

Investigation Outcomes
contents
  • 31 Jan 2020

    After a four-year investigation by French, British, and U.S. authorities, Airbus admitted to their long-running bribery and corruption scheme involving sales to at least 19 markets. Airbus agreed to pay almost $4 billion in fines in a so-called Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA). Under the terms of the DPA, Airbus itself avoids criminal conviction, but individual employees of Airbus may be prosecuted for their involvement in the bribery and corruption scheme. No Airbus employees have been prosecuted thus far, and it is unlikely that they will in the future, which may risk setting a precedent where individuals are not held accountable for their involvement in endemic corruption. While this settlement is a monumental case in anti-corruption within the global arms trade, it elucidates the ways in which transnational corporations can buy their way out of harsher consequences. With a net worth of $107.2 billion, a $4 billion fine for endemic bribery and corruption still seems miniscule; however, the cooperation among countries that took place during the investigation of the case to hold Airbus financially responsible is a potential step forward in anti-corruption efforts.

  • 8 May 2020

    Soetikno Soedarjo was sentenced by the Indonesian Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to 6 years in prison and a Rp 1 billion fine for bribing Satar, Soedigno, and Captain Wahjudo.

  • 9 May 2020
