Former AGO official grilled over Anggodo case

| Fri, February 5 2010 | 01:48 pm

JAKARTA: The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) grilled former deputy attorney general of intelligence Wisnu Subroto on Thursday in connection with his role in an alleged bribery case involving businessman Anggodo Widjojo.

The commission arrested Anggodo last month for allegedly obstructing its investigation into his fugitive brother, Anggoro Widjojo, also a graft suspect.

Anggoro, was allegedly involved in a bribery case revolving around a Forestry Ministry radio communication procurement project, with a total budget of Rp 180 billion (US$12,72 million).

Wisnu arrived at the antigraft body office at 7:30 a.m. and left about eight hours later.

He managed to escape the ambush of journalists who had waited to interview him by leaving the KPK building through a side door.

The Constitutional Court played a recorded tape containing a wiretapped conversation between Anggodo and several people, including Wisnu, detailing their alleged attempt to settle Anggoro's case by framing the antigraft officials.

On the same day, the KPK also questioned Ari Muladi, one of Anggodo's accomplices, whose name was also mentioned in the recordings. No official statement from the KPK about the details of the questioning has been made. - JP
