Bekasi, — Dari beberapa pelacakan aset yang dilakukan Komisi Pembe-rantasan Korupsi telah ditemukan sedikitnya 150 item aset milik Tubagus Chaeri Wardana alias Wawan yang diduga merupakan hasil tindak pidana korupsi. Aset-aset tersebut berupa mobil, tanah, dan bangunan yang tersebar di sejumlah tempat.

KPK telah menetapkan Wawan sebagai tersangka tindak pidana pencucian uang (TPPU). Bahkan, Wawan tak hanya dikenai pasal-pasal dalam Undang- Undang Nomor 8 Tahun 2010 tentang TPPU. KPK juga menjerat Wawan dengan UU TPPU tahun 2003 untuk mengantisipasi adanya aset-aset yang diduga diperoleh dari tindak pidana korupsi sebelum tahun 2010.

”KPK menduga ada aset-aset TCW (Tubagus Chaeri Wardana) yang diduga diperoleh dari tindak pidana korupsi sebelum tahun 2010,” kata Juru Bicara KPK Johan Budi SP, di Jakarta, Rabu (15/1/2013).

Berdasarkan informasi yang diperoleh Kompas, dari hasil pelacakan aset oleh KPK ditemukan sedikitnya 150 item aset milik Wawan yang diduga hasil korupsi. KPK telah mengidentifikasi aset-aset tersebut, antara lain berupa mobil, tanah, dan bangunan yang tersebar di beberapa tempat.

30 perusahaan keluarga

Perolehan aset-aset tersebut diduga dari tindak pidana korupsi melalui sejumlah perusahaan yang terafiliasi ke Wawan dan kakaknya, Gubernur Banten Ratu Atut Chosiyah. Ada sekitar 30 perusahaan milik keluarga Wawan dan Atut yang menguasai tender-tender pengadaan di wilayah Banten. Perusahaan tersebut rata-rata ikut tender dengan nilai proyek di atas Rp 5 miliar. Semua aliran uang dari perusahaan itu mengalir ke keluarga Wawan dan Atut.

Johan saat dikonfirmasi ihwal aset-aset milik Wawan yang diduga diperoleh dari tindak pidana korupsi mengatakan, ”Sekarang sedang dilakukan asset tracing (pelacakan aset). Sudah kami temukan. Diduga ada puluhan dalam bentuk tanah dan bangunan di beberapa tempat yang kami duga merupakan aset yang bersangkutan. Ini masih dalam tahap pelacakan.”

Johan belum dapat memastikan apakah aset-aset Wawan yang diduga diperoleh dari hasil korupsi tersebut telah disita KPK. Namun, dia memastikan, dalam perkara TPPU, KPK akan menyita aset-aset tersangka yang memang diduga berasal dari hasil korupsi.

”Kalau memang diduga diperoleh dari tindak pidana korupsi, akan disita. Apalagi sudah jadi prosedur di KPK, begitu seseorang ditetapkan menjadi tersangka, maka yang dilakukan penyidik adalah melacak aset-asetnya,” kata Johan.
Tersangka pencucian uang

Secara terpisah, pengacara Wawan, Pia Akbar Nasution, mengaku baru tahu kliennya ditetapkan sebagai tersangka TPPU oleh KPK dari media. Menurut Pia, dia hanya menangani kasus dugaan korupsi dalam penanganan sengketa Pilkada Kabupaten Lebak di Mahkamah Konstitusi di mana Wawan juga menjadi tersangka.

”Kalau soal TPPU-nya Pak Wawan saya belum dapat informasi karena surat kuasa kami hanya di kasus suap MK. Belum ada informasi soal TPPU-nya,” kata Pia.

Menurut Pia, meski hampir setiap hari berkomunikasi dengan Wawan, kliennya tidak membicarakan ihwal status sebagai tersangka TPPU. Termasuk penetapan Wawan sebagai tersangka pengadaan alat kesehatan di Kota Tangerang Selatan.

Terkait kemungkinan Atut juga menjadi tersangka TPPU, Johan mengatakan sangat terbuka. ”Sepanjang ditemukan dua alat bukti yang cukup, yang dapat menyimpulkan dia terlibat, kemungkinan itu bisa saja. Namun, sampai hari ini (kemarin) belum ada tersangka baru dalam perkara TPPU ini,” katanya.

KPK sebelumnya kembali menetapkan Atut sebagai tersangka dugaan korupsi terkait penerimaan sesuatu selama dia menjabat sebagai Gubernur Banten. Atut bahkan diduga memeras bawahannya, kepala-kepala dinas di jajaran Pemerintah Provinsi Banten agar memberikan fee dari proyek yang dikerjakan dinas-dinas yang bersangkutan. Jika kepala-kepala dinas tidak menuruti permintaannya, Atut tidak segan mencopot mereka.

Ditemukan KPK 150 Aset Wawan yang Diduga Hasil Korupsi

Late in April, after Native American actors walked off in disgust from the set of Adam Sandler’s latest film, a western sendup that its distributor, Netflix, has defended as being equally offensive to all, a glow of pride spread through several Native American communities.

Tantoo Cardinal, a Canadian indigenous actress who played Black Shawl in “Dances With Wolves,” recalled thinking to herself, “It’s come.” Larry Sellers, who starred as Cloud Dancing in the 1990s television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” thought, “It’s about time.” Jesse Wente, who is Ojibwe and directs film programming at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, found himself encouraged and surprised. There are so few film roles for indigenous actors, he said, that walking off the set of a major production showed real mettle.

But what didn’t surprise Mr. Wente was the content of the script. According to the actors who walked off the set, the film, titled “The Ridiculous Six,” included a Native American woman who passes out and is revived after white men douse her with alcohol, and another woman squatting to urinate while lighting a peace pipe. “There’s enough history at this point to have set some expectations around these sort of Hollywood depictions,” Mr. Wente said.

The walkout prompted a rhetorical “What do you expect from an Adam Sandler film?,” and a Netflix spokesman said that in the movie, blacks, Mexicans and whites were lampooned as well. But Native American actors and critics said a broader issue was at stake. While mainstream portrayals of native peoples have, Mr. Wente said, become “incrementally better” over the decades, he and others say, they remain far from accurate and reflect a lack of opportunities for Native American performers. What’s more, as Native Americans hunger for representation on screen, critics say the absence of three-dimensional portrayals has very real off-screen consequences.

“Our people are still healing from historical trauma,” said Loren Anthony, one of the actors who walked out. “Our youth are still trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in this society. Kids are killing themselves. They’re not proud of who they are.” They also don’t, he added, see themselves on prime time television or the big screen. Netflix noted while about five people walked off the “The Ridiculous Six” set, 100 or so Native American actors and extras stayed.


But in interviews, nearly a dozen Native American actors and film industry experts said that Mr. Sandler’s humor perpetuated decades-old negative stereotypes. Mr. Anthony said such depictions helped feed the despondency many Native Americans feel, with deadly results: Native Americans have the highest suicide rate out of all the country’s ethnicities.

The on-screen problem is twofold, Mr. Anthony and others said: There’s a paucity of roles for Native Americans — according to the Screen Actors Guild in 2008 they accounted for 0.3 percent of all on-screen parts (those figures have yet to be updated), compared to about 2 percent of the general population — and Native American actors are often perceived in a narrow way.

In his Peabody Award-winning documentary “Reel Injun,” the Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond explored Hollywood depictions of Native Americans over the years, and found they fell into a few stereotypical categories: the Noble Savage, the Drunk Indian, the Mystic, the Indian Princess, the backward tribal people futilely fighting John Wayne and manifest destiny. While the 1990 film “Dances With Wolves” won praise for depicting Native Americans as fully fleshed out human beings, not all indigenous people embraced it. It was still told, critics said, from the colonialists’ point of view. In an interview, John Trudell, a Santee Sioux writer, actor (“Thunderheart”) and the former chairman of the American Indian Movement, described the film as “a story of two white people.”

“God bless ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ” Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in “Twin Peaks,” said sarcastically. “Even ‘Avatar.’ Someone’s got to come save the tribal people.”

Dan Spilo, a partner at Industry Entertainment who represents Adam Beach, one of today’s most prominent Native American actors, said while typecasting dogs many minorities, it is especially intractable when it comes to Native Americans. Casting directors, he said, rarely cast them as police officers, doctors or lawyers. “There’s the belief that the Native American character should be on reservations or riding a horse,” he said.

“We don’t see ourselves,” Mr. Horse said. “We’re still an antiquated culture to them, and to the rest of the world.”

Ms. Cardinal said she was once turned down for the role of the wife of a child-abusing cop because the filmmakers felt that casting her would somehow be “too political.”

Another sore point is the long run of white actors playing American Indians, among them Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Johnny Depp, whose depiction of Tonto in the 2013 film “Lone Ranger,” was viewed as racist by detractors. There are, of course, exceptions. The former A&E series “Longmire,” which, as it happens, will now be on Netflix, was roundly praised for its depiction of life on a Northern Cheyenne reservation, with Lou Diamond Phillips, who is of Cherokee descent, playing a Northern Cheyenne man.

Others also point to the success of Mr. Beach, who played a Mohawk detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and landed a starring role in the forthcoming D C Comics picture “Suicide Squad.” Mr. Beach said he had come across insulting scripts backed by people who don’t see anything wrong with them.

“I’d rather starve than do something that is offensive to my ancestral roots,” Mr. Beach said. “But I think there will always be attempts to drawn on the weakness of native people’s struggles. The savage Indian will always be the savage Indian. The white man will always be smarter and more cunning. The cavalry will always win.”

The solution, Mr. Wente, Mr. Trudell and others said, lies in getting more stories written by and starring Native Americans. But Mr. Wente noted that while independent indigenous film has blossomed in the last two decades, mainstream depictions have yet to catch up. “You have to stop expecting for Hollywood to correct it, because there seems to be no ability or desire to correct it,” Mr. Wente said.

There have been calls to boycott Netflix but, writing for Indian Country Today Media Network, which first broke news of the walk off, the filmmaker Brian Young noted that the distributor also offered a number of films by or about Native Americans.

The furor around “The Ridiculous Six” may drive more people to see it. Then one of the questions that Mr. Trudell, echoing others, had about the film will be answered: “Who the hell laughs at this stuff?”
