Miranda testifies before KPK on Nunun’s case
Miranda Swaray Goeltom, a suspect in the high-profile 2004 Bank Indonesia (BI) case, underwent questioning by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Monday.
“She [Miranda] was questioned in her capacity as a witness for Nunun Nurbaeti [another suspect in the same case]. Miranda’s testimony will be used to complete Nunun’s dossier,” KPK spokesperson Johan Budi said on Monday.
Miranda was questioned for four hours.
Johan said that Nunun's dossier would probably be completed within a week and would be forwarded to the Jakarta Corruption Court.
Nunun, the wife of Justice and Prosperous Party (PKS) lawmaker and former National Police deputy chief Comr. Gen. (ret.) Adang Daradjatun, is a suspect in the vote-buying scandal for allegedly distributing 480 traveler’s checks worth Rp 24 billion (US$2.66 million) to 33 House of Representatives lawmakers overseeing finance and BI in return for votes for Miranda in the BI senior deputy governor election.
Critics say that she could escape a prison sentence if the case built against her is too weak. (rpt/mtq)
