  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Chief of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), Firli Bahuri, has stated that he has no clue whatsoever on the whereabouts of Harun Masiku, a former legislative candidate turned suspect in the bribery case of former General Elections Commission (KPU) commissioner Wahyu Setiawan.

    “If I know where he is, I will apprehend him. If you know where he is, tell me, then I will apprehend him,” said Firli, on January 21, 2020.

    As a result, Firli demanded for Harun to turn himself in. “I would like to say to Harun Masiku; wherever you are, do cooperate, be it in the form of turning yourself in to the KPK or an officer of the police,” said Firli.

    Harun is one of the keys in uncovering the bribery case of Wahyu Setiawan. Harun is suspected of bribing Wahyu in order to guarantee a seat in the People’s Representative Council (DPR) through an interim replacement mechanism (PAW).

    Previously, the KPK has apprehended Wahyu in a series of sting operations (OTT), on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. The KPK suspects Wahyu to have received Rp 600 million from a total value of Rp 900 million in bribes.

    The KPK and the Directorate General of Immigration from the Ministry of Law and Human Rights insisted that Harun Masiku is still abroad. On the other hand, Tempo has discovered that Harun Masiku had returned to Indonesia on 7th of January 2020, the day before the sting operation.
