Nunun Escorted by US Marine Corps Veteran
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:During her two years on the run, Nunun Nurbaetie was allegedly escorted by five Caucasian men and a Thai national. One of them was Philip B. Christensen, a US Marine Corps veteran.
“They took turns to guard Nunun,” said a Tempo source, as reported in the magazine’s main report this week.
Nunun, a suspect in the Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor election bribery, was detained in Bangkok on December 7. The house that she hid in was rented in Philip’s name.
In the main report titled “Mafia Behind Nunun”, Tempo wrote that Philip was detected from the data of several airlines that were monitored by international police. Nunun was listed as a fugitive by Interpol this May.
When asked about this matter, Nunun’s husband Adang Daradjatun refused to explain. “I won’t answer no matter how much you ask me,” he said.
Corruption Eradication Commission’s (KPK) spokesman Johan Budi said the investigation on the “big guy” who had been protecting Nunun so far depended on the new KPK leaders’ policies.
Indonesia Corruption Watch’s analyst, Donal Fariz, challenged the KPK to investigate the case down to the roots. “The mariner must’ve been paid by a certain group who had an interest in the bribery case,” he said. “The KPK must pursue this.”
