Data from
Paradise Papers - The Power Players
Opposition party leader, Indonesia (2008-present)

Prabowo Subianto


Prabowo Subianto is a former Indonesian National Armed Forces general who has been accused by human rights groups and others of being responsible for the abduction and torture of democracy activists in the 1990s , during his time in the military. Opposition party leader Prabowo was narrowly defeated in the Indonesian presidential election in 2014 and has said that he intends to run again in 2019. He was once married to President Suharto’s second-oldest daughter, Titiek.

In the data

Prabowo was director and deputy chairman of Bermuda-registered Nusantara Energy Resources. The company registered in 2001 was listed as a “bad debtor,” according to Appleby’s records and was closed in 2004. A Singapore company also named Nusantara Energy Resources is now part of Nusantara Group, a resource company partly controlled by Prabowo, according to Indonesian media.


Fadli Zon, the deputy chairman of Prabowo’s Gerindra party, said that Prabowo “has no connection” to Nusantara Energy Resources (Bermuda). Fadli denied that the company was established to avoid taxes and said that it has not been active since it was founded.

"This is a one-dollar company," Fadli told ICIJ’s Indonesia media partner TEMPO. He also said that the company was set up for global oil and gas exploration and that some politicians were involved, but he didn’t know about their role in the company.
