Public officials from four state institutions will handle 151 documents that are claimed by graft convict Gayus H. Tambunan to have links with his clients, officials say.

Newly inaugurated director general of taxation Fuad Rahmany said Wednesday that the "joint team" consisted of officials from his office, the National Police, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the Development and Finance Surveillance Agency (BPKP).

"The joint investigation team started talks today and will be based at the tax office so that the classified documents can be protected, Fuad told a news conference at his office in Jakarta.

National Police chief detective Comr. Gen. Ito Sumardi said the formation of the joint investigation team aimed at speeding up the process to study the Gayus-related documents.

"We will eliminate every bureaucracy barrier that usually hampers the investigative process, Ito said.
