“MN allegedly took part in the meetings and the budgeting of the e-KTP procurement project in the House of Representative (DPR),” said the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesperson Febri Diansyah in the written statement Wednesday, July 19.
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.
