Bribery Scandal in Buol Involves Billions
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Antigraft Commission (KPK) deputy Bambang Widjojanto said that they seized up to billions of rupiah when they captured a businessman from Buol, Central Sulawesi, Anshori red-handed on Tuesday. The anti-graft agency is still counting the money. "We need time to count it, but itís estimated to be in the billions," he said. However, he refused to explain the details about the money yet because it was still being calculated. "Calculating it is complicated; itís not loose change," he said. But Bambang did promise to reveal the amount in the near future.
KPK arrested Anshori, an oil palm businessman in Buol, on Tuesday. In the arrest, large sums of money were confiscated. The alleged bribery was suspected to be in connection with processing the land rights to an oil palm plantation. Anshori has an oil company in the area.
KPK had declared Anshori a suspect. The bribery reportedly involved Regent Amran Batalipu. KPK said Amran escaped arrest and Busyro Muqoddas confirmed that they were currently hotly pursuing him.
For the time being, KPK is intensifying the interrogation of three men who allegedly were Anshoriís partners, arrested this afternoon and brought to KPK tonight. "Because A was the executor in Buol and the three are related with this case," he said.
Anshori himself, Bambang said, had been interrogated in Palu since this morning and was now flying to Jakarta with the investigators, en route to KPK. "Heís due to arrive tonight."
What about Regent Amran? Bambang refused to give an explanation. He reasoned that the involvement of other parties was still being looked into.
