    The police were scheduled to quiz today Papua Governor Lukas Enembe, Elpius, and a doctor who performed surgery on KPK member Muhamad Gilang Wicaksono, but the investigations were postponed to Tuesday as the three were unable to meet the summonses and requested rescheduling.

    Two KPK investigators were assaulted on Saturday evening at Hotel Borobudur in Central Jakarta. The investigators were tasked to follow-up on a field report on possible corruption. The police only announced that the suspect was a staffer of the Papua Province government.
