    TEMPO.CO, JakartaKPK has named a House of Representative (DPR) member in the 2009-2014 period Markus Nari as the suspect of the e-KTP graft case.

    Febri said Markus had enriched himself, and others or a corporation, in the e-KTP graft case worth Rp 5.9 trillion that has caused a Rp2.3 trillion state loss in the 2011-2013 period.

    KPK suspected that Markus had asked a Rp5 billion from Irman, former Home Affairs Ministry official. The anti-graft agency also suspected a Rp 4 billion transaction occurred between Irman and Markus. “We'll investigate the indication of the transaction further,” Febri said.

    The Golkar Party politician has allegedly violated Article 3 or Article 2 and Article 21 of Law on Corruption. 

    Earlier in June, KPK has named him a suspect for allegedly dissuading the investigation process in the e-KTP graft case. 

    Markus Nari is the fifth suspect at the electronic ID card (e-KTP) graft case. The anti-graft agency has previously named former Home Affairs Ministry officials Irman and Sugiharto, businessman Andi Narogong, and DPR speaker Setya Novanto as the suspects in the e-KTP graft case.
