Eni Saragih Always Reports to Idrus Marham: PLTU Riau-I Bribery  

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has alleged that the former deputy chairman of the House’s Energy Commission Eni Maulani Saragih always gave reports to former Social Affairs Minister Idrus Marham every time she received bribes related to the PLTU Riau-I steam power plant project.

“Every time Eni receives bribes, she always reports to Idrus Marham,” said KPK deputy chairman Alexander Marwata in Jakarta on Friday, August 31.

Alex said that the information was revealed through evidence of communication between Eni Saragih and Idrus the KPK secured. In addition, the owner of Blackgold Natural Resources Limited, Johanes Budisutrisno Kotjo, who was also a suspect in the case, corroborated the evidence.

The evidence was crucial to the KPK to name Idrus as the third suspect in the case. The KPK suspected Idrus and Eni received gifts from Kotjo, and that Idrus allegedly knew that Eni received bribes from Johanes of Rp4 billion in November-December 2017 and Rp2.25 billion in March and June 2018.

The KPK also suspected Idrus was promised a bribe of US$1.5 million. “Idrus is also allegedly receiving an appointment to get the same share of Eni’s bribes,” said Basaria.

Basaria said Idrus was also allegedly facilitating the signing of a power purchase agreement in the PLTU Riau-I project.

The KPK suspected Idrus had violated Article 12(a) or 12(b) or Article 11 of Law No. 31 of 1999 on Corruption Eradication as amended by Act No. 20 of 2001 juncto Article 55 (1) of the Book of Law-Criminal Law Act (KUHP) in conjunction with Article 64 (1) of the Criminal Code.
