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.
