Neneng Seeks to Take Rp1Trillion in Assets Over to Malaysia
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Antigraft Commission (KPK) deputy Bambang Widjojanto said Neneng returned to Indonesia on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, for many purposes. According to him, the arrival of the wife of the former Democrat Party treasurer Muhammad Nazaruddin was probably intended to carry out her husband's business interests.
It was suspected that Neneng managed to go through the border of the two countries because she was aided by two Malaysians, Raja Azmi bin Muhamad Yusof and Mohamad Hasan bin Khusi.
A Tempo source who once met with Azmi disclosed that Neneng returned to Jakarta to move assets in the form of cash, travelersí checks and valuable goods worth almost Rp 1 trillion. The assets would be sent to Maybank (Malaysian Banking Berhad). "The KPK has confiscated the cash and the checks. Neneng's bank accounts, too, have been blocked," said the source.
When queried about the cash seized by KPK, KPK deputy Busyro Muqoddas refused to respond [to the question]. The investigators are studying the matter further," he said.
Junimart Girsang, Neneng's attorney, denied the allegation that his client returned to Indonesia to move her assets over to Malaysia. He said it was not true Neneng possessed assets totaling hundreds of billions of rupiahs. If queried about Neneng's assets, he said, it would be back to Nazaruddin's assets. "After all, she's Nazar's wife. So the assets are collectively theirs," he said. Junimart also denied reports that KPK had confiscated Neneng's assets. "How could they have possibly confiscated [the assets]? Until now Ibu Neneng has not yet been questioned," he said. Until Friday, June 15, 2012, KPK had just checked Neneng's health condition and identity.
