Civil Society Coalition Visits KPK; Demands Setya Novanto Arrest

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) members calling themselves the Civil Society Coalition plans to visit the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) building on Thursday, September 14. The Coalition plans to urge the KPK to arrest House of Representatives' speaker Setya Novanto, who had been named as a bribery suspect in the electronic identity card (e-KTP) procurement project.

"Around 30 people will come," the coalition's coordinator Tibiko Zabar, who is also an analyst with the Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW), said in Jakarta, Thursday.

Tibiko said that representatives from the ICW, the Indonesian Legal Aid (YLBHI), and KontraS will meet with KPK leaders to convey their demand.

According to Tibikor, the KPK has been under attack since the e-KTP graft investigation began. This includes the attack on senior investigator Novel Baswedan and the agenda to disband the antigraft body by DPR through a special inquiry rights.

The KPK has named Setya Novanto as a suspect in the bribery scandal on July 17. To date, he has not come for questioning. The Golkar Party chairman has been evading KPK summons over health reasons. The last was on September 11 when he claimed to have high blood sugar.
