TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission's (KPK) prosecutors said to have evidence proving Setya Novanto's involvement in the e-KTP procurement graft.

"Oh, certainly (we have evidence). Every sentence in our indictment is corroborated with at least two evidence," KPK prosecutor Irene Putri said at the Corruption Court today, March 9. 

Setya and two other suspects are charged with stealing the state's money for personal reasons, resulting in Rp2.3 trillion in state losses.

The prosecutors' indictment also said alleged that the House of Representatives' (DPR) speaker arranged for the House's Commission II to approve the e-KTP project's Rp5.9-trillion budget and received 11 percent of it (Rp547 billion) for himself.

Setya denied the accusation and swore he never took the money. 

Irene is undeterred by Setya's claim of innocence and said that the money in question has been distributed.

"If anyone wants to deny it, go ahead. We have other evidence, though," she said.

Irene said Setya's involvement in the case began when Andi Agustinus a.k.a. Andi Narogong; two former officials of Home Affairs Ministry's Directorate General of Population and Civil Registration, Irman and Sugiharto; and the ministry's secretary general Diah Anggraeni asked the Golkar Party chairman to support the e-KTP procurement project.

"Setya promised to coordinate it with other faction members," Irena said. 

Seeking approvals from Commission II, Andi then planned to give out money to the commission's board members and ministry officials.
