House to question police investigation of Gayus' corporate clients
The House of Representatives is planning to question the police in their decision to focus on investigating only 44 of 151 companies listed as clients of notorious graft defendant Gayus Tambunan, while he was active as a tax officer.
The police said Tuesday it had secured data regarding 151 companies that had been clients of Gayus, but added that it would focus on only 44 of them.
House deputy speaker Pramono Anung said legislators of House Commission III, which oversees legal affairs, would discuss the issue at an upcoming commission hearing with the police.
"The police should not discriminate. All 151 companies should be investigated,” Pramono said.
"They should not, without providing an explanation to the public, reduce the 151 companies to 44. This will be among the areas questioned by Commission III."
