TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) mentioned that South Minahasa Regent Christiany Eugenia Tetty Paruntu had been questioned in the bribery case incriminating House of Representatives (DPR) lawmaker Bowo Sidik Pangarso.

“She has been examined as a witness during the investigation and trial process,” said the anti-graft body's spokesman, Febri Diansyah, Monday, Oct. 21.

The KPK grilled Tetty during the investigation into a bribery case of Bowo Sidik on June 26, 2019. In the agency’s indictment, Bowo, who was the House’s head of Commission VI, was accused of receiving a bribe of Rp2.6 billion related to shipping cooperation and gratification worth Rp7.7 billion.

Febri recalled the investigation on Tetty was aimed at tracking the alleged source of gratification received by Bowo Sidik. During the trial at the Jakarta Corruption Court on September 25, Bowo claimed to have accepted the bribe from Tetty, his colleague in the Golkar Party, in a brown envelope.

Bowo also testified that Tetty had told him to update her on any information on government projects related to market revitalization. In the trial on October 2, Tetty denied the allegations.

Earlier today, Oct. 21, Tetty Paruntu was summoned to the State Palace. Her arrival was reportedly pertaining to President Jokowi’s plan to announce his ministers in the second-term cabinet. However, Tetty balked at responding to questions about whether she would join the cabinet.
