TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Villages, Underdeveloped  Regions, and Transmigration Minister Eko Putro Sandjojo was grilled with 17 questions today by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in relation to a bribery case implicating Rochmadi Saptogiri, a senior auditor of the Supreme Court Agency (BPK).

Eko said that he met Rochmadi in events that were attended by officials of the KPK, the BPK, the Financial and Development Comptroller (BPKP) and the State Apparatus and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry.

The meetings were held on several occasions to provide guidance to the ministry officials in relation to administrative issues, Eko said. “At the meetings, the KPK leaders were typically present and Pak Rohmadi was typically present. I knew him there,” he said.

The KPK today questioned Eko over his relationship with Rochmadi. The BPK senior auditor has been named a suspect in a bribery case related to an unqualified opinion in an audit report for the Village Ministry for the fiscal year 2016.

Rochmad was arrested in a sting operation launched by the KPK on May 26. The KPK also nabbed BPK auditor Ali Sadli and Ministry’s inspector general Sugito and echelon III official Jarot Budi Prabowo before naming them as suspects for taking bribes.

In the sting operation, the KPK seized Rp40 million allegedly used as a part of Rp240 million being promised to get an unqualified opinion on the Ministry budget for 2016. At Rochmadi’s office, the KPK also found Rp1.145 billion and US$3,000 in cash.
