KPK to arrest Angelina Sondakh soon
Yogyakarta: Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Abraham Samad said on Monday that the antigraft body would soon arrest suspended Democratic Party deputy secretary-general Angelina Sondakh, the latest suspect in the SEA Games’ bribery case.
“We are completing the dossier. We will arrest her soon after it is completed. Just be patient,” Abraham said during the inauguration of Deputy Law and Human Rights Minister Denny Indrayana as a professor at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta.
He did not say when the dossier would be completed. “It depends on the investigators,” he said, adding that the commission would soon summon Angelina for questioning.
When asked whether the KPK would name another new suspect, such as Democratic Party chairman Anas Urbaningrum, whose name has been mentioned several times during the case’s trial, he said “God willing. We will just have to follow and supervise the legal process.”
Anas, who was also present at the inauguration, said that he would prioritize party consolidation so that the ongoing legal process would not affect the party.
“We only have one answer. Work hard, work hard and work hard,” he said.
Angelina, via the Democratic Party’s public relations division member Kahfi Siregar, said she respected the party’s decision to suspend her.
“I leave everything to the Democratic Party. I appreciate its decision for the sake of the party,” she said as quoted by Kahfi.
Angelina added that she respected the legal steps taken by the law enforcers.
“I have told my children. They were a bit shocked, but I’ve told them to stay strong,” she said.
Angelina said she had yet to hire a lawyer to represent her because she had yet to receive the summons.
