KPK Investigators Fly to Singapore, US in E - KTP Case

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) have collected new evidence from Singapore and the US in the electronic identity card (e-KTP) case.

“We have dispatched investigators to the United States because there was an important witness there,” the KPK chief Agus Rahardjo told Tempo on Friday. Agus declined to reveal the identity of the witness, the location of the questioning and new evidence being collected.

A source said that aside from visiting the US, investigators have also flown to Singapore to interrogate and collect new evidence from a witness, who supplied the automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) to the consortium of the e-KTP project. Having developed the case, the KPK is now targeting the House of Representatives (DPR) Speaker Setya Novanto—who served as Golkar faction chairman during the deliberations of the project budget in 2010.

Earlier, the indictment against two home affairs ministry officials Irman and Sugiharto mentioned that Setya was one of five individuals, together with the defendants, who had violated the law and enriched themselves in the project, causing Rp2.3 trillion in state losses.

The rumor of Setya Novanto suspect status has been circulating for two weeks. After skipping questioning on two occasions, the Golkar Party chairman complied with the KPK summons on Friday.

Setya had once again denied involvement in the e-KTP graft case, including the facts presented in the trial of Irman and Sugiharto leading to links to Setya and suspect Andi Agustinus. “I don’t know him [Andi Agustinus],” he said.

KPK deputy chief Saut Situmorang has called on the public to remain patient over the investigation into the e-KTP case. “Just wait, we will not disappoint,” Saut said.
