Nunun Nurbaeti is a suspect regarding Miranda Goeltom’s bribery case surrounding her voting as the Senior Deputy Governor of Bank Indonesia in 2004, following the testimony that Nunun distributed Rp 22 billion in bribes to dozens of government officials and lawmakers. She suffered from “memory loss” and thus undergoes treatment in Singapore, but then she fled to Thailand and later it was found out that she’s in Cambodia.
I remember during my youth I played an edutainment game named “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” which teaches us geography. We are supposed to chase the villain, Carmen Sandiego, across various places around the globe as she leaves a trail of hints to go to the next place where she’s heading before the time runs out. You would also need a warrant and make an arrest, thus if you obtain the wrong warrant or arrest the wrong guy, the villain will escape – you lose points and miss your chance to get promoted up the rank.
I wouldn’t be surprised if suddenly Indonesian game developers make the similar Carmen Sandiego game but based on Nunun Nurbaeti’s efforts to run away from the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the police.
UPDATE – 9 June 2011
Turns out the Indonesian police applied for an Interpol red notice to arrest Nunun. Seems like our very own Carmen Sandiego is indeed in the making.
On a lighter note, I read in the newspaper today that she’s off to Viet Nam. Now I’m taking bets to find out when KPK (or Interpol) will finally catch Nunun. My friend bets for 2 weeks, I’m betting for 10 days. But if the Interpol indeed issued the red notice, perhaps 5 days.
Take your guess. Winner gets bragging rights in my blog.
