The travel ban will last for six months. Agung explained that Oka Masgung allegedly involved in the e-KTP graft case.

Oka Masagung was earlier mentioned by e-KTP graft case suspect Andi Agustinus or Andi Narogog during a trial held yesterday. According to Andi, Oka Masagung was House of Representative Speaker Setya Novanto’s right hand in managing Setya’s assets. Oka Masagung was also trusted to distribute funds taken from e-KTP project to lawmakers.

“As much as US$3.5 million have been distributed to DPR [members] in late 2011, and another US$3.5 million in early 2012. Anang transferred the funds to Oka Masagung,” Andi Narogong said during the trial.

Oka Masagung is the owner of Delta Energy Investment, and Anang is the CEO of PT Quadra solution. KPK has named Anang as a suspect in the same case.
