E-KTP Graft Key Witness Dies in US

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesperson Febri Diansyah announced the death of Johannes Marliem, who was a key witness to the controversial electronic ID card or e-KTP graft case.

“It is true, Johannes Marliem is reportedly dead, but we have yet received further information regarding his death considering that it happened in the United States,” said Febri at the KPK headquarters on Friday, August 11.

Marliem was considered as a key witness because he is said to have evidence of the conversation between the masterminds behind the e-KTP graft that went on for four years. The amount of evidence he has is said to be enough to probe the corruption that caused Indonesia to lose Rp2.3 trillion.

The indictment of the two main suspects in the case, Irman and Sugiharto, mentioned Marliem as the provider of the automated finger print identification system (AFIS) with the name L-1 for the e-KTP project. 

He testified for several KPK investigators back in February that was conducted in Singapore and in July in the United States. 

Febri said that the investigation will continue and that the investigation of Johaness’ death is the responsibility of local authorities.
