Former tax official Gayus Halomoan Tambunan, accused of corruption and embezzlement and currently being held in remand awaiting trial is said to have bribed Police Mobile Brigade officers to allow him to visit the paradise island of Bali for a weekend, to attend a tennis championship.
A person looking very much like Gayus Tambunan - wearing a wig - was seen staying at the Hotel Westin in Nusa Dua along with five other people, last weekend; and seen again watching Daniela Hantuchova and Yanina Wickmayer slug it out at the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions at Nusa Dua on 5th November.
Meanwhile a commentator, the Director of Pukat (Center for Anti-Corruption Studies/Pusat Kajian Anti Korupsi) at UGM (Gadjah Mada University) Zainal Arifin Mochtar in Jakarta said on 13th November that while it was true that Gayus was not "seksi" in the way that might stir the loins of womenfolk, nevertheless he could be said to possess seksiness in a certain respect.
He's got so much information about crooked public servants, businessmen, and policemen. That makes him sexy, and he's aware of his sexiness. So, it makes sense that there are a lot of people who want to help and protect him. Plus, he doesn't just have money, but he knows how to use it.
Zainal said that it was because of this "seksiness" that Gayus was able to come and go from detention at will, and why the police seemed so slow and confused in their response to the Bali escapade issue.
