Samin Tan’s email account was “specifically targeted in a sophisticated and persistent attack” to retrieve sensitive documents, a seven-page report by a private security company claims, according to a newspaper.

One member of Bumi’s board subsequently received some of the documents by email from an unnamed “whistleblower”, and several other staff at Bumi are thought to have had their accounts hacked into.

Mr Tan and the Bakries - the politically-connected Indonesian family that co-founded Bumi - commissioned the security company, Context Information Security, to look into how information on the chairman’s computer had leaked.

The investigation revealed that last July, hackers penetrated Mr Tan’s computer, which gave access to emails and other sensitive documents.
