  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is set to question Rizal Ramli, former coordinating minister of economics, finance, and industry, in the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) graft case.

    The anti-corruption institution will question Rizal as a witness to suspects Sjamsul Nursalim and Itjih S. Nursalim.

    “We schedule a questioning session for Rizal Ramli as a witness in the case involving suspects SJN and ITN,” said KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah on Thursday, July 18,

    Today’s questioning was rescheduled from originally on Thursday last week.

    The KPK probed the case since 2013 and only got its break two years ago. Syafruddin was later charged for colluding with businessman Sjamsul Nursalam and his wife, Itjih Nursalim, to commit corruption that caused Rp4.58 trillion in state losses.

    The anti-graft agency named former BPPN head Syafruddin Arsyad Tumenggung suspect in April 2017. In September 2018, Syafruddin was declared guilty by the Corruption Court and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.
