Tiga Direksi Waskita Karya Dinonaktifkan
OLEH: ELLEN PIRI
Jakarta–Tiga direksi PT Waskita Karya (Persero) secara resmi dinonaktifkan Kementerian Negara Badan Usaha Milik Negara (BUMN).
Penonaktifan ketiganya terkait kasus kelebihan pencatatan (overstate) laba bersih dalam laporan keuangan perusahaan periode 2004-2007.
Pada periode 2004-2007, direksi Waskita terdiri dari Umar T.A Triatman, Bambang Marsono, dan Kiming Marsono. Dari tiga direksi, dua orang direksi bekerja di Waskita dan sisanya ada di BUMN lain.
Sekretaris Kementerian Negara BUMN Said Didu me-ngatakan, penonaktifan terhadap ketiga direksi tersebut telah dilakukan sejak dua minggu lalu.
Ia memastikan salah satu yang dinonaktifkan yakni Kiming Marsono. “Menteri BUMN sudah bentuk tim untuk membela mereka,” katanya, di Kantor Kementerian BUMN, Jumat (28/8).
Said Didu menjelaskan, pihaknya sudah menandata-ngani surat yang akan ditujukan kepada Departemen Keuangan untuk menindak kantor akuntan publik Waskita.
Dalam surat tersebut, ungkapnya, Menteri BUMN Sofyan Djalil meminta Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal dan Lembaga Keuangan (Bapepam LK) untuk memberi sanksi kantor akuntan publik jika terbukti terlibat dalam rekayasa keuangan.
“Ini pelajaran bagi direksi, jangan coba-coba melakukan rekayasa,” kata dia lagi. Kasus overstate sekitar Rp 400 miliar itu terbongkar setelah ditemukannya pencatatan yang tidak sesuai oleh Dirut Utama Waskita Karya M Choliq saat melakukan pemeriksaan kembali neraca dalam rangka penerbitan saham perdana tahun lalu.
Akibat kasus overstate tersebut, penawaran saham Waskita ditunda hingga PT Pe-rusahaan Pengelola Aset (Per-sero) menyelesaikan restrukturisasi yang diperkirakan memakan waktu dua tahun.
Said mengatakan, untuk menyehatkan Waskita, PPA membutuhkan dana suntikan Rp 200 miliar.
“Menkeu minta direksi dihukum dulu baru disuntik. Selain itu, bila terbukti bersalah direksi harus mengembalikan semua keuntung-an kepada negara,” ujarnya. n

Indonesian Government Sees Red As State Firm’s Loss Revealed
State Enterprises Minister Sofyan Djalil on Thursday vowed firm action against executives and auditors of state-owned construction company PT Waskita Karya for cooking its financial reports over a four-year period.
The revelation has jeopardized the firm’s planned initial public offering, with
the ministry saying Rp 400 billion will need to be injected to cover the
Sofyan acknowledged that Waskita had reported net profit of about Rp 200 billion ($19.8 million) in its 2004-2007 reports, but that these were found to have been falsified.
“Waskita needs internal discipline. The company has actually booked losses for four years but it reported that it booked profits,” he said.
Sofyan said the irregularity was discovered in mid-2008. Believing that Waskita was in good health, the government decided to prepare it for an initial public offering in 2011. While the State Ministry for State Enterprises was tidying up the company’s books for the IPO, it was discovered that the firm had actually been losing money.
In September, the House of Representatives granted Waskita a permit to sell as much as 35 percent of its equity to raise Rp 600 billion.
According to State Enterprises Ministry data, Waskita posted a net profit of Rp 52.68 billion in 2004, Rp 50.28 billion in 2005, Rp 54.85 billion in 2006 and Rp 34.1 billion in 2007. It was yet to publish its 2008 financial report.
Sofyan said Waskita had used “the wrong accounting system” since 2004, resulting in annual profit being recorded. Waskita repeatedly reported total revenue expected from multi-year construction projects in its annual reports, even though only a portion of the total revenue expected from these projects were received during any one year, the minister said. In reality, the company was accumulating hundreds of billions of rupiah in losses.
State-owned asset management company PT Perusahaan Pengelolaan Aset (PPA), which was appointed to probe the matter, found that Waskita had actually run up a deficit of about Rp 400 billion.
“Those who are responsible for the matter will get sanctions, including job terminations,” Sofyan said.
The directors of Waskita were reported to have received bonuses during the
period, which Sofyan said his office would demand be returned, even if the directors were not involved in the financial irregularities. He also vowed to take those responsible to court.
Waskita management could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, Sofyan said PPA would be designated as the source of the Rp 400 billion lifeline to help Waskita return to a sound financial footing. “We hope that within two years the company will be in better financial position,” he said.
Sofyan also called on the Ministry of Finance to review the auditors of the company’s financial reports, with a view to possibly bringing them to account as well.
“If we find that the auditor knew about it but did not do anything, we will ask
the Finance Ministry to revoke the auditor’s license,” he said.
