KPK may get party’s Nazarudin

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) says it is considering an offer from the Democratic Party to release the results of the party’s internal investigation of the SEA Games bribery scandal.

"We will discuss this first," KPK deputy Chairman Muhammad Yasin said on Sunday as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.

Jafar Hafsah, the leader of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives, said on Saturday he was ready to give law enforcement agencies the investigation’s results.

The party’s investigation reportedly alleged that former Democratic Party Treasurer M. Nazarudin was involved in the bribery scandal surrounding the construction of the athletes’ village for the South East Asian Games in Palembang, South Sumatra.

Yasin’s statement came after Nazaruddin sent a text message to journalists alleging that fellow party members Angelina Sondakh and Mirwan Amir and Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) I Wayan Koster were at fault in the case.

"I will only speak up if asked by relevant institutions," Jafar said on Saturday.

Jafar declined to comment on Nazaruddin's statement, saying, “There's no way I'm speaking to you."

Nazaruddin, who is wanted for questioning in the scandal, flew to Singapore for "medical reasons" one day before a travel ban was imposed on him.
