President Suharto

Suharto was President of Indonesia from 1967 – 1998. Soon after his forced resignation, Time magazine published an article alleging it had traced some $15 billion in wealth accumulated by his family in 11 countries. The magazine also documented more than $73 billion in revenues and assets that had passed through the Suharto family’s hands during his tenure as President of Indonesia. He is number 1 on Transparency International’s list of most corrupt leaders.

Amount Laundered: US$15- US$35 billion.

Punishment: In his mid-eighties, Suharto was considered too old to be brought to trial and died in 2008.
