TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Anti Graft Commission (KPK) finally seized a luxurious house belongs to the suspect of imported beef graft case, Ahmad Fathanah, in Depok, last Friday May 10, 2013.
At first, the developer resisted KPK in putting up a seizure sign on the house. It was because Fathanah has not paid off the Rp 5.8 billion worth of house. The developer still awaited for another Rp 2 billion payment from him, and therefore they thought they still had the rights over the house and land.
According to Mr. Kenang, the legal officer representing the developer of Persona Khayangan, they have proposed a simple solution to KPK, which is selling the house, and then the Rp 3.8 billion belongs to Fathanah will be submitted to KPK.
“But KPK officer disagreed. He said to wait for the court’s result,” Kenang said. Though they strongly resisted KPK’s action, Kenang finally succumb after the officers claimed the developer could be alleged to Article 5 the Law of Money Laundering (TPPU).
