TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Speaker of he House of Representatives Bambang Soesatyo claimed he did not know the transfer of funds of Rp50 million for the event of Golkar Party in Central Java that was asked by the KPK investigators in the electronic ID card (e-KTP) corruption case.
“The event occurred in May 2012, I was still a member of the House of Representatives' Commission III,” said Bambang, Friday, June 8.
Bambang said the investigator showed the evidence of fund transfer where he did not know the source, the recipients, and the activities financed by the funds. He also claimed not to know the motive of the remittance. He added that any assistance was not sent via bank transfer but handed over directly.
Bambang, a Golkar Party cadre, was examined as a witness of two e-KTP corruption suspects, Made Oka Masagung and Setya Novanto's nephew Irvanto Hendra Pambudi Cahyo. KPK has summoned a number of Golkar Party cadres.
The allegation of the flow of funds to Golkar began to appear in the investigation of Anang Sugiana Sudihardjo, President Director of Quadra Solution company, who is now a defendant of e-KTP card corruption. KPK suspected that the money given by Andi Agustinus alias Andi Narogong, who has been sentenced to 11 years in prison by the Jakarta High Court, was to fund Golkar Central Java activities.
KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said KPK investigators had obtained some information from Bambang's examination. Next, the investigators will reconstruct the result of the examination with the alleged flow of e-KTP case.
