The organizing committee together with KONI have paid off the prize debt of the Indonesia International Marathon 2022 to the first winner of the men’s international category, Jack Ahearn, amounting to Rp 100 million. However, they still owed two more winners.
Hotman Paris Hutapea’s son, Frank Hutapea, as Ahearn’s lawyer, said it. He said the payment of the prize was made today and it was not full or there was a Rp 5 million tax deduction out of a total Rp 100 million.
“So, today KONI has paid its obligation to Jack Ahearn in the amount of Rp. 100 million. It has been paid off,” Frank said by telephone with secondsTravel, Wednesday (31/8/2022).
“However, there are still two other winning foreigners who have not been paid. They also appointed me (as a legal representative),” he added.

Because of this incident, Frank immediately coordinated with the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, who was also dragged into the field of sport tourism. Sandiaga said he was very active in responding.
“Yesterday afternoon I communicated with Mr. Minister Sandiaga Uno and he immediately responded. I said at the beginning there were three people who had not been paid by KONI and Panpel,” said Frank.
“Last week they only paid a third to Jack. And today it paid off,” he added.

So, apart from Jack Ahearn, there are still two foreigners who have not received prizes. They were runner-up in the international men’s category and second in the international women’s category.
Respectively, the runner-up in the international men category named Michae John Ackerman should have received a prize of Rp. 100 million and has not been paid. Meanwhile, the runner-up in the international women’s category named Henrietta Margriet Brouwer should have received a prize of Rp 75 million, but was only paid Rp 25 million with tax deductible.
“These two just got placards. We’ll keep watch until they all get their gifts,” Frank said.
