KPK to meet with House commission
House of Representatives Commission III on Law and Human Rights will meet with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in a hearing on Thursday.
The hearing was to be chaired by commission chairman Benny K. Harman of the Democratic Party and his deputy Aziz Syamsuddin of the Golkar Party.
KPK leaders Chandra M. Hamzah, M. Jasin and Haryono Umar will represent the anti-graft body.
The KPK have named dozens of former and current lawmakers as graft suspects, alleging they accepted bribes in a multi-billion rupiah scandal that centers on the alleged distribution of traveler’s checks to members of the House of Representatives’ Commission IX overseeing finance to buy support for a candidate for a senior central bank position in 2004.
