Thai police still hunting for Nunun: RI ambassador
Thailand's police force has been hunting for graft fugitive Nunun Nurbaeti since July with no result until today, according to Indonesian ambassador for Thailand Muhammad Hatta.
"In July, the Indonesian government won a lawsuit that ordered Thai police to hunt and arrest Nunun. Such a court ruling was required by Thailand's legal system to arrest foreign fugitives in the country, whether they were already in Interpol’s list or not," Hatta told Indonesian reporters in Bangkok on Wednesday.
A Thai court ruled in favor of the Indonesian government, thanks to assistance and supporting documents provided by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), Hatta said.
However, no good news had been received from the Thai police and government since the ruling had been issued, he added.
Nunun was captured on camera with another woman in front of a shopping counter in Singapore. The photograph has been published by tempo.co. The news portal also reports that the picture was taken few months ago.
Nunun has been named as a KPK suspect for allegedly distributing travelers checks to dozens of former lawmakers as part of a Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor election in 2004.
