Radar Bali reports that the White Rose Hotel located on Jalan Raya Legian in Kuta has been seized by officers from the Bali police headquarters based on an ongoing investigation prompted by a report made by Hari Budihartono on February 21, 2009.
The seizure took place on Monday, March 16, 2003, and was performed by four officers of the Economic-Social Crime Division of the police back up by unformed officers from the criminal reserve unit of the Bali police. In attendance at the seizure where representatives of the complainant and the defendant, Rachmat Agung Leonardi, alias Yongki, who is the major shareholder in the hotel property.
Johnny Riwoe, the complainant in the case, told Radar Bali that the seizure emanates from a sales transaction concluded nearly two years ago with Yongki to purchase the hotel. Riwoe says that a notarial act sealing the deal was signed by both parties setting a sale price of Rp. 50 billion (US$4.5 million).
Riwoe also claims that despite paying a down payment of Rp. 10 billion, Yongky failed to complete the transaction by turning over all legal documents within the stipulated 2 months and 7 days from the date of the transaction's signing. Moreover, Yongky is alleged to have refused to refund the deposit when he was unable to hand over the required documents.
Prosecutors issued the seizure order after determining sufficient evidence exists to suspect a criminal act had been committed in the case.
According to Radar Bali, the defendants in the case were unavailable to comment on the case.
