    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has named Batubara Regent OK Arya Zulkarnaen as a suspect in an alleged graft case surrounding a number of projects in Batubara Regency, North Sumatra.

    “The KPK has named five suspects, including OK [Arya Zulkarnaen] who received the bribe, car dealer owner STR, and Batubara Public Works Agency head HH who also received the bribe," KPK deputy chief Alex Marwata said in Jakarta today, Sept. 14.

    The other two suspects are MAS and SAZ who allegedly bribed the three suspects. Both of them are contractors.

    During a sting operation, KPK seized money amounting to Rp364 million. The amount of bribe for the project was Rp4.4 billion.

    “The total value of the project is Rp44 billion for two contractors. MAS, SAZ, and OK received 10 percent of the project value, which is Rp4.4 billion,” Alex said.

    Earlier on Wednesday, September 13, the KPK launched a sting operation and arrested OK Arya Zulkarnaen. The anti-graft commission also detained six other people. After questionings, the KPK named five individuals as suspects.
