Two men on trial in Bali accused of stealing funds from Automated Teller Machines (ATM) in various locations across Bali saw State prosecutors demanding prisons terms of 13 years and fines of Rp. 100 million (US$11,000) for each of the men.

The court session on September 21, 2010, presided over by chief judge Sigit Sutanto, heard prosecutors tell that court that there was no indication of mitigating circumstances for the two men charged with theft.

The two defendants, Roby Sugihartono and Suhadi Lumanto, are charged with stealing funds from ATMs in Bali between September 2008 and February 2010. The men are accused of colluding a larger circle involved in the theft, some of whom are facing trial while others are sought by police as fugitives.

Prosecutors tell how the group used credit card skimmers and concealed cameras at ATM machines to obtain card information and password codes that allowed them to steal funds from the customers of various banks in Bali. One of the two would install card skimmers and cameras at ATM machines in Sanur and Kuta while the accomplice would pretend to be standing in line to hide their activities from unsuspecting ATM customers.

The camera and skimmer would only be left at any one location for five hours before being removed to a new location. The data was then sent to an overseas accomplice who would later send the card details and password information back to the men to allow them to create new, falsified ATM cards that permitted the withdrawal of funds.

One Bank alone - Bank Central Asia - is estimated to have lost Rp. 5.8 billion (US$644,000) through the resulting fraudulent transactions.
