The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has searched the offices of top officials at state-owned company PT Krakatau Steel as part of its investigation into bribery allegedly involving one of the company’s directors.
KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said investigators raided six Krakatau Steel offices from 3 p.m. on Monday until 3 a.m. on Tuesday
KPK investigators confiscated several documents related to Krakatau Steel's ongoing projects and future projects, Febri said.
“We will examine the evidence as part of the investigation,” he said.
The antigraft body detained on Friday three graft suspects, namely Wisnu Kuncoro, the company’s production and technology director; Alexander Muskitta, a businessman; and Kenneth Sutardja, the president director of engineering and manufacturing company Grand Kartech.
Another suspect, Kurniawan Eddy Tjokro, who had been on the run for two days, handed himself him to the KPK along with his lawyer.
The KPK named Kurniawan a suspect for allegedly handing a check amounting to Rp 50 million (US$3,528) to Alexander — who is suspected to have acted under Wisnu’s instructions — as kickbacks for the procurement on Wednesday last week.
Febri said the KPK was currently interrogating Kurniawan. (das)Artikel Asli
