KPK extends travel ban
on missing Nunun

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) extended the overseas travel ban for Nunun Nurbaeti, who is currently the most wanted suspect in a high profile bribery case, despite saying they had no clue as to her whereabouts.

“[The ban] is extended from April 1, 2011, to April 1, 2012,” immigration office spokesperson Bambang Catur said Tuesday as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Nunun, a businesswoman and wife of former National Police deputy chief Comr.Gen. Adang Daradjatun, has been declared a suspect in the case of alleged bribery surrounding the election of Miranda.S. Goeltom as Bank Indonesia’s Senior Deputy Governor in 2004.

She has been missing since March of last year and is reportedly in Singapore receiving treatment for a disease that causes “severe forgetfulness”.

The KPK had requested that the immigration office forbid Nunun from traveling overseas from March 24 of last year to March of this year.

Nunun is suspected of distributing Rp 24 billion (US$2.81 million) in bribes in traveler’s checks to legislators to vote for Miranda.
