KPK Ensures Legitimacy of Travel Ban against Setya Novanto

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesperson Febri Diansyah said the travel ban imposed against House of Representatives (DPR) Speaker Setya Novanto is in accordance with the procedures. Febri added that the travel ban was based on the KPK Law and the Immigration Law.

“The travel restrictions were imposed by the immigration [office] based on the KPK’s order and under Article 12 paragraph (1) letter b of the KPK Law, the Immigration Law, and other related regulations,” Febri said in Jakarta on Tuesday, November 14.

The KPK, according to Febri, has coordinated with the immigration office to anticipate Setya’s lawsuit filed with the Jakarta Administrative court today. He pointed out that his office is not in a position as a defendant in relation to the lawsuit.

Earlier on October 2, the KPK sent a request to impose a travel ban against Setya Novanto to the Immigration Directorate General.

Immigration Directorate General spokesperson Agung Sampurno confirmed that the travel ban request was in accordance with the procedures. He said that the letter was an order.

Later, Setya Novanto filed a lawsuit demanding the Jakarta Administrative Court to declare that the letter is illegal. Setya expected the court to order the defendant to revoke the letter.
