Supreme Court Judge Nabbed in KPK Sting Operation

22 September 2022 20:16 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) deputy chairperson Nurul Gufhron on Thursday, Sept. 22, confirmed that the antigraft agency had arrested a supreme court judge in one of its sting operations (OTT) carried out in Jakarta and Semarang. 

“It saddens KPK to arrest the supreme court judge. The corruption case incriminating the judiciary is truly depressing. KPK is truly concerned and hopes that this arrest will be the last on a practitioner of the law,” said Ghufron in a statement on September 22. 

Head of the KPK News Section, Ali Fikri, said the agency had nabbed five people from the Supreme Court (MA) in the sting operation for allegedly being involved in bribery linked to the Court’s management of cases.

Ali Fikri said they were arrested on Wednesday night, September 21. During the arrest, the KPK confiscated a number of items, including money in foreign currencies.

"Until now the money is still being confirmed to the arrested parties," he said.
