KPK Says Setya Novanto Should Comply with Summons

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has urged the House (DPR) Speaker Setya Novanto to comply with its summons for a questioning on Wednesday, November 15. The KPK plans to question Novanto over his alleged involvement in the electronic identity cards (e-KTP) graft case.

“I believe one should comply with the law. Should the law enforcement issues a summons, they ought to comply,” KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said today in Jakarta.

Febri said that the anti-graft agency has yet to be notified whether Novanto would attend the questioning tomorrow. He expects the House Speaker could clarify the issue to the KPK on the occasion.

Setya Novanto earlier failed to attend a trial session in the e-KTP graft case. He did not comply with the first summons for work reasons. Setya skipped another trial session on grounds that the anti-graft agency needed the President’s permit to issue the summons.

Setya Novanto’s lawyer Fredrich Yunadi said that his client will seek protection from the President, police and the military if the KPK issues a summons.

The KPK has challenged Setya Novanto’s decision to skip the questioning on grounds that the anti-graft agency needed the President’s permit. “We have read UU MD3 [the Law on Parliament], it is expressed that a written permit of the president is not applicable if one is charged with committing special crimes...” Febri said.
